JAMES SUCKLING: "The black color indicates a solid and structured red with loads of blackberry and blueberry character. Full-bodied and very tight and tensioned. Savory tannins that are powerful and intense at the finish. Classically structured. Finely toned and formed young red."
WINE ENTHUSIAST: "This is a powerful wine with a great future that displays a rich, juicy blackberry flavor and ripe tannins. It is well-structured and generous in fruit, yet well balanced and shows promise for the future. - Roger Voss"
ROBERT PARKER - THE WINE ADVOCATE: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Giscours delivers expressive notions of baked raspberries, Black Forest cake and sautéed herbs with a core of crème de cassis, pencil lead, fertile loam and fallen leaves. Full-bodied, taut and muscular in the mouth with earth-laced baked black fruits, it has a firm, chewy texture and refreshing herbal sparks on the finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown"
WINE SPECTATOR: "A very solid wine, with a dense core of steeped plum and blackberry puree flavors, liberally infused with black tea, alder and sanguine accents. The long finish unfurls nicely, revealing depth and a caressing feel. - James Molesworth"
DECANTER: "Deep purple in colour with violet edging, this is beating fast with juicy bramble fruit and life. You can feel the texture of the berries in the mouth, making this a luxurious, confident Giscours, with swirls of smoke backed up by spice. There's an effortless quality to the tannins, but this is definitely built to last. It easily stands up to the 2015 and 2016. - Jane Anson"
FALSTAFF: "Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Frische süße Feigen, schwarzes Waldbeerkonfit, kandierte Orangenzesten, einladendes, reifes Bukett. Saftig, feine Extraktsüße, gute Komplexität, integrierte Tannine, charmanter, seidiger Stil, ein trinkfreudiger Speisenbegleiter. - Peter Moser"
