La Sirène de Giscours Margaux 2010


La Sirène de Giscours is the second wine of Chateau Giscours in Margaux, and comes in it roughly half the price of its big brother.  My standard tip is to look closely at the second wines such as these of the classified wines of Bordeaux, particularly in strong vintages like 2010.  In this case, for example, you won't be disappointed.  There are attractive aromatics of cigar box, leather, earth, mulberry and blackcurrant.  The palate sees a medium length finish, perhaps a little more, with tight tannins and classic left bank flavours of blackcurrant and cedar.  This is an enjoyable and balanced wine with a strong finish, that I suggest will be lovely drinking over the next 5 to 10 years.  It's a yes from me.  Good to Very Good
