PRODUCT REVIEWS (2)

This new Petite Sirène 2016 from the acclaimed Château Giscours (third growth from Margaux) made in a tip-top vintage, is pure class. The colour is deep red with just a hint of purple still. It has a good ripe nose of black fruits with some ripe merlot within. On entry, this wine covers the palate delectably with good structure and balance as well as length. It is in my parlance ‘a belter’ and not to be missed, I shall shortly be putting in an order for a case for the Grange cellars. Château Giscours from Margaux have yet again come up with excellence, by the way it has a gold medal.

Strangely enough Petite Sirène 2016 went well with a pork fry, courgette, red pepper, spring onions, sesame seeds, egg noodle and soy. Not necessarily a gourmet dish but mighty tasty!

Critic's review:
"From a corking vintage, its effectively the 3rd wine of Château Giscours (the much-loved Third Growth from Margaux) made by the same winemaking team. A blend of 70 per cent Merlot and 30 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon, its richly flavoured and succulent with red and dark berry fruit, whispers of vanilla and spice and a long, mouth-filling finish. Its an extremely approachable entry level claret with impeccable pedigree and reassuringly accessible price. In short, it's perfect." (previous vintage).

Really lovely balanced Bordeaux drinking beautifully right now. Plenty of red and black berry fruit and little hints of earthy maturity. Refreshing lively finish. A delicious bargain. (previous vintage)
