Ch Giscours

Located in the commune of Labarde, over 80 hectares of vineyards, Chateau Giscours has a long, rich history, which can be traced back to the fourteenth century. It is one of the largest Margaux properties and now producing wine worthy of its 3eme Cru Classe status.  

Giscours was in a dire state when it was acquired by Nicholas Tari in 1952. He invested heavily and the quality of the wine improved beyond recognition. In 1995 he sold up the property to Dutch businessman Eric Albada Jelgersma. Giscours's wine is typically a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.
