Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
Perfumy, with lilac and singed balsam notes out front, backed by a charming core of damson plum, bitter cherry and blood orange fruit flavors. Very silky through the finish, with a light sanguine edge lingering. Drink now through 2022. 23,335 cases made.
The 2014 La Sirène de Giscours is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It has a light, cedar-scented bouquet that feels a little rustic. The palate is medium-bodied with high acidity on the entry. It feels a little pinched and needs more flesh to develop toward the finish.
Some quite smoky oak heralds this full-bodied and fleshy wine, which ends with a slightly dry finish. Impressive, but a little bit showy. Still you gotta love it. Second wine of Giscours. Try in 2019.
