    (Chateau Giscours Margaux) This has a lovely, dense perfume on the nose, with dark fruits presented in an elegant, gravelly style. On the palate it is quite dense and spicy, with a significant core of ripe and grippy tannin. This has fine style, the texture in keeping with the structure. It is dense, a wine of substance, but it has an alluring edge. This seems to have really fattened out since my previous tasting, and the wine now seems a match for the structure. A higher score is certainly deserved.

    (Chateau Giscours Margaux) Quite a fine, red fruit and perfume nose, with youthful cashew nut oak on the nose. On the palate it is rather lighter in impact than some other wines. There is a firm wall of tannin and rather bracing acidity too, the texture and fruit isn't quite up to the same level. Good character, but perhaps a little over worked.

    (Chateau Giscours Margaux) Lovely appearance, dark and glossy, not quite with the intensity of the 2005 though. Rather closed on the nose, although there is a pleasing presence of mineral-laced black fruits. Ripe, rounded palate, very firm, quite a complete style. Firm tannins and nice acidity. Great typicity, really attractive with it. The tannins only dominate on the finish. This has good potential.
