Château Giscours: A Unique Estate Surrounded by a Thriving and Pristine Ecosystem While the earliest historical records of Château Giscours trace back to the 14th century, its true transformation began in 1552 when Pierre de Lhomme, a prosperous Bordeaux draper, acquired the aristocratic "Guyscoutz" house. He established an expansive estate and planted the first vines, setting the stage for centuries of continuous evolution. In 1995, Eric Albada Jelgersma, a wine enthusiast and art collector, purchased the property, embarked on vineyard restructuring, and renovated the estate's facilities. Today, his children, with the assistance of Alexander Van Beek, oversee this illustrious 3rd Grand Cru Classé in the 1855 classification of Margaux. Giscours stands out with its breathtaking grandeur. As a self-contained living entity, the estate offers an unparalleled experience within an unspoiled natural setting. Here, the harmony of the entire ecosystem contributes to its collective success. The 95 hectares of vineyards seamlessly integrate with their environment, nestled within a remarkable biodiversity reserve. The forest and park, meticulously designed in 1870 by the renowned landscaper Eugène Bühler, are teeming with an exceptional array of flora and fauna. The wines crafted at Château Giscours reflect the essence of the place, its surroundings, and the dedicated individuals behind them. The Grand Vin bears a distinctive signature: a splendid equilibrium between aromatic brilliance and delicate tannins.
