Château Giscours is described as "one of the most seamless Margaux in the vintage" by Jeb Dunnuck (93-95 points) and there is general agreement from the other critics that this is an excellent vintage. After the death of owner Eric Albada Jelgersma in 2018 his family have sold their other estate in Margaux, du Tertre. Alexander Van Beek, the estate's winemaker for many years, has been replaced by Jerome Poisson, with Thomas Duclot brought into consult. Jane Anson muses that this may be a sign of intent, to push quality even higher at Giscours, so this will be an interesting estate to follow in this and in coming vintages.
