Product Details

Located in the commune of Margaux, this château is ranked as a Third Growth property from the 1855 Classification of Médoc. Just before that classification, a wealthy Parisian, the Count de Pescatore, renovated this estate, and is given credit for bringing the wines back to a superior quality. After World War II, Nicolas Tari took over the estate, making some serious renovations that included replanting the vineyards and constructing a man-made lake that would later contribute to the terroir of the wines. Today the vineyard makeup is very typical of most fine Medoc estates - Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot (42%) and the remaining, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Franc (5%). A quarter of the plot is considered old vine, with 40-year-old vines. The estate's second wine is called La Sirène de Giscours and outside the commune's border, the estate makes a bottling called Le Haut Médoc de Giscours.
