2010 Giscours, 2010 du Tertre On The Right Bordeaux Track in Margaux


2010 Giscours and 2010 Chateau du Tertre 2010 Bordeaux Wine review, tasting notes and ratings.

2010 Giscours Produced from a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Merlot, this is the highest concentration of Cabernet Sauvignon in the history of the chateau! The harvest produced yields that were slightly lower than they produced in 2009.  That combination created a deep ruby colored wine offering floral, cassis, boysenberry and smoky aromas.  Round tannins, supple textures and more muscle than usual led the way for a long, fresh, pure, ripe, cassis finish. 91-93 Pts

According to Alexander Van Beek, he’s happy with the masculine edge to the style of Giscours in this vintage.  He graciously stated, “Credit goes to their consultant Denis Dubordieu, who began working with Giscours and du Tertre starting with this vintage. “

2010 du Tertre  is the product of a blend from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. This is unique for the property as they usually include between 10% and 20% Cabernet Franc.  This assemblage created a perfume of tobacco leaf, fresh herb, and blackberries.   This elegant, medium/full bodied is filled with sweet cassis, ripe tannins and floral sensations ending with soft textures and ample freshness in the finish. 90-92 Pts
