Description

Tasted at the Château Giscours vertical, the 1996 Château Giscours is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot picked between September 9 and 23. It has never been a really great vintage for this Margaux address, despite the benevolent growing season for the Left Bank. The nose is nicely defined with light red berry fruit, but there is a distracting medicinal scent that puts me off and detracts from terroir expression. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, a little dusty and dour with a thin and rather lackluster finish. It just seems ordinary. Tasted June 2015.

Tasting note

1996年的美人魚吉斯庫爾城堡紅酒,是瑪歌產區高貴風土的典範。酒體呈現出中等的紅寶石色澤,散發著高調的紅色水果香氣,並帶有雪松橡木的細微氣息。口感上,紅醋栗的味道與奶油質地相得益彰,活潑的酸度和柔順的單寧為這款酒帶來和諧的平衡。酒體中等偏輕,建議醒酒一小時後飲用,以展現其細膩的風味層次。收尾雖不過於成熟,但仍然愉悅,顯示出酒的優雅陳年潛力。搭配烤羊肉或烤牛排等佳餚,將使您的用餐體驗更上一層樓。

The 1996 Chateau Giscours is a testament to the prestigious Margaux terroir, offering a classic profile with a medium ruby-red hue and a bouquet of high-toned red fruits, underscored by a cedary oak presence. On the palate, redcurrant notes are complemented by a milky texture, while lively acidity and smooth tannins create a harmonious balance. This wine, with its mid to light body, is best enjoyed after decanting for an hour, allowing the subtle complexities to unfold. The finish, though not overly ripe, is pleasant and indicative of the wine's graceful aging potential. Pair this savory delight with dishes like roast lamb or grilled steak to enhance your dining experience.
