Giscours 2015

Giscours 2015 was released today for €36 per bottle ex-negociant, up 30.4% on the 2014 (€27.6). For London buyers, its release of £390 per 12×75 makes it 44% more expensive than the 2014’s release of £270.

Critics were almost unanimous in their praise of Giscours 2015. Neal Martin awarded it an in-barrel score of 94-96 and said he would wager that “2015 will be the best since the 1961.” James Suckling did not look back as far, but stated that it was “clearly the best Giscours since 1970 and 1975”, scoring it 96-97.

The 2015’s average critic score of 94.5 is the highest of all back vintages in the table above. At £390, it is also less expensive than the 2005, 2006, 2009 and 2010. As Neal Martin suggests, perhaps now is the “time to fall back in love with this great Margaux property.”
