The history of Château Giscours goes back to a document mentioning the existence of the property from 1330, or rather the noble house of “Guyscoutz”. It was in 1847 that the Count of Pescatore built the remarkable Castle which dominates the vineyard. The year 1855 marks the consecration: Château Giscours becomes 3rd Grand Cru Classé de Margaux.

The exceptional terroir of Château Giscours blooms on 83 hectares of vines, in the heart of a beautiful Margaux appellation. The grape variety consists of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Permanent care is provided to the vine during the seasons and the plot selection is constantly refined thanks to important investments in the vineyard. Raised in oak barrels of high quality, the wine acquires over the months its complexity.

At the tasting, the Château Giscours offers all the classicism of a great Margaux: finesse of tannins, purity, soft and refined elegance, great roundness in the mouth.
