Haut-Medoc Giscours 2020

Grown in plots selected from our historic Haut-Médoc terroirs,
the family’s third wine has been made by the Giscours team ever since it was created in 1992.
Our Haut-Médoc has been grown and vinified at Giscours by our technical teams for nearly 30 years. Using grapes from our plots in the Haut-Médoc appellation, this is a wine to be enjoyed, offering huge aromatic radiance. Another interpretation of our terroir.

Another interpretation of our terroir
Haut-Médoc Giscours is a convivial, fresh wine for your enjoyment. It reveals the beautiful aromatic radiance that forms part of the Giscours identity.

Our vineyard workers meticulously cultivate our Haut-Médoc vines (60 ha in total) all year round in keeping with the same philosophy. Balance and finesse remain key. The terroir, a mixture of fine gravel and sand, ensures a hugely delicate wine.

With abundant fruit, delicate tannins and a hugely fresh finish, this is a wine of which we are very proud, and which fully deserves its place alongside Giscours’s top wines.

Haut-Médoc Giscours has been elaborated from the historical Giscours’ Haut-Médoc appellation vines (60 ha in total).

Since its creation, in 1992, this wine is vinified by our teams with the same care that leads the elaboration of our grand cru classé, Château Giscours.

Our Haut-Médoc plots have benefited from the ideal conditions of 2020. The resulting Haut-Médoc is a generous wine with a rich bouquet of sun-drenched fruits. Haut-Médoc Giscours 2020 is an enjoyable, convivial and delightful wine; full of aromatic brilliance, the perfect illustration of Giscours’ identity.
