2009 Château Giscours Margaux red
Giscours has a long and rich history, which can be traced back to the 14th century. At that time, it was a defensive tower dominating a wild and inhospitable region.
The real beginning of this estate was in 1552 when Pierre de Lhomme bought a noble house called "Guyscoutz", which he transformed into a vast estate and planted the first vineyards. Wine production was launched and each of the rich merchant's successors had their contribution to this magnificent building.
It was in the 19th century, under the promise of the Pescatore and Cruse families, that Giscours gained much of its elegance: the château was transformed into a neoclassical palace by the architect Eugene Büler and the production facilities were modernised with the construction of huge buildings, including the famous "Ferme Suzanne".
