Château Giscours La Sirene de Giscours Margaux 2010, Bordeaux, France





This is a delicious second wine from this Chateau.

Full bodied with medium acidity and dry on the palate with a great nose.

Showing blackberries, black currants, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, cigar box, tobacco leaf, graphite, light bell pepper, peppercorn, earth and sweet black tea.

A beautiful wine from a great vintage. Very enjoyable with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Decanter gave it 86 points. I think they missed it this time.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show the complexity. It’s definitely worth the wait.

Feels like a Napa Bordeaux blend right out of the bottle, but then it changes as it opens up.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$60.
