Château Giscours Margaux 2010 Bordeaux Red Wine, $96.04-$112.99, (Inflation! Ouch!!!!) 95 points, welled black at the core, and trended a royal purple color near the clear glass rim.
On the nose lovely cedar and roses were subtle, but the not so subtle toasty blueberry and black fruit were equally lovely!
The near full body carried a crisp acidity and ripe drinkable tannin. Had a silky smooth texture with a bounty of unfolding flavors beginning from those of the aroma and layered with coffee, mint, and developing plum notes.
Finished with the power of cola, warmth from the 13.5% alcohol, and mouth-tingling spices.
Varietals were 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot.
This 2010 vintage of the Château Giscours Margaux was vastly divergent and better (in my humble opinion) than was the Chateau Giscours Margaux 2009 Bordeaux. Here you will see that I probably wasn't going to buy this wine again, but what a treat. Incroyablement beau!
