12 x 75cl * 13.5% ABV * Margaux, Bordeaux, France
Bordeaux in 2020 seems to have all the freshness that made the outstanding 2016 so appealing, but also combines the warmth and accessibility of vintages like 2009 - we can't get enough of this vintage, even if volumes are largely down.
Merlot grew well in 2020 and as a result Giscours increased this to 44% of the blend.
