89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot; 29.3 g/l dry extract; 13.2% alcohol):  Dark ruby with purple highlights.  Lively aromas and flavors of cassis, violet, cedar and minerals.  Then fresh, suave and balanced, offering good balance but only average intensity.  Finishes suave and clean, with persistent floral and licorice notes.  A rather stylish wine and yet another testimony to just how well the 2004 Bordeaux are drinking currently.   Interestingly, in yet another demonstration of how laboratory data alone isn't sufficient to evaluate wines, some of the technical parameters of the 2004 Giscours are very similar to those of the 2001, yet the two wines couldn't be more different.

Great French

Excellent fresh and juicy wine, not like all the old style and heavy french wines, except for the great ones, this one is recommended.
