Château Giscours Vertical Tasting Hosted by Alexander Van Beek | Monday 22nd November

Château Giscours has a long and illustrious history, it was classified as a Third Grand Cru Classé in 1855 classification and has attracted a loyal following of connoisseurs over the centuries.

Pierre de Lhomme, a rich draper founded the vineyard in 1552 in the prized Margaux commune and today it is owned by Dennis, Derk & Valerie Albada Jelgersma,  the children of the late Eric Albada Jelgersma, the charismatic Dutch entrepreneur who was a renowned art collector and wine lover.

Situated in the heart of the Margaux appellation, this third growth estate has undergone massive change under the direction of General Manager, Alexander Van Beek, a fellow dutchman, who arrived at the property in 1995 at the young age of 24. Since the purchase considerable investment has been made. Following an extensive terroir study there has been considerable replanting with a change from 60% Merlot in 1995 to 65% Cabernet Sauvignon today.

Alexander will conduct a tasting spanning the 20 years of the property. A date not to be missed by any Bordeaux lover.
