Ranked #4 of 36 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot from Margaux
A big, superripe, almost blockbuster style for this commune (Margaux) - but nicely balanced. It has loads of dark-fruit aromas, including blackberry, cherry liqueur and violets, suggesting ultra-ripe cabernet sauvignon. In the mouth it's sweetly ripe, succulent and delicious. Gorgeous flavour. An outstanding wine with a big future.
Drink: 2015 to 2039
89 Points Robert Parker
The 2009 Giscours has a medium to deep garnet color and delivers evolved prunes, baked blackberries and fruitcake scents with an earthy, dried herbs and potpourri undercurrent plus a waft of sweaty leather. The medium to full-bodied palate has a rugged frame of chewy tannins and a firm grip on the somewhat rustic finish.
