Grand Cru Classé of Margaux, Château Giscours opens its doors to you in the village of Labarde, about twenty kilometers north of Bordeaux in the Médoc.

Located at the heart of a 300-hectare property, the Château Giscours vineyard covers 80 hectares in the Margaux appellation. Grand cru Classé in 1855, the wine of Château Giscours possesses all the elegance of the grands crus from this prestigious terroir. Managed by Eric Albada Jelgersma since 1995, Château Giscours is thus part of the continuity of generations of winegrowers, making this estate a world-renowned Grand Cru. The neoclassical facade of the current castle, dating from the 19th century, faces the vineyard which extends over more than 85 hectares. On the other side, you have access to the splendid park with rare species designed by the landscape designer Eugène Bülher. The guided tour begins with the history of this prestigious estate: in 1330, a fortified keep was built on the site of Château Giscours. Two centuries later, the estate is recognized as a vineyard, its wine was notably served to Louis XIV. Presentation of the vines, discovery of the vat room and cellars, tasting in the room dedicated to this quasi-religious moment ... The visit is fascinating, enamelled with many anecdotes (we inform our kind customers that our barrel cellar and vat room are currently closed to the public for renovation).

About the host

From the land of Giscours, in the very heart of the Margaux appellation,
a great wine is produced: Château Giscours,
recognized as a gold standard in the world of Bordeaux Grands Crus.

But this is not all, Giscours is much more! A vibrant community lives and breathes at Giscours.
Wine being both the last and the first step; the origin and the end.
A working farm, grassland where animals graze, a vegetable garden to be as self-sufficient as possible, offering local products to our Chef as well as food for the cattle.
Guests stay on site in our rooms or in our houses for a day or a few nights, for a celebration, a memorable event, a relaxing getaway or a private dinner at the Château.

The immensity of the park can be explored as a real forest of wonders, discovering rare species, venerable trees, and an astonishing array of wildlife, along the locks and the ponds.

Abundance is the rule at Giscours and the view is wide. Winegrowers and farm workers come and go, grapes arrive, visitors cross paths in the shop, the work in the vineyard is carried out, wine tastings are held throughout the day.

Discovering Giscours means enjoying a great wine, Third Growth, powerful yet precise, a historic symbol of Bordeaux’s reputation, but it is also experiencing the life at Giscours and engaging to it.
Taking part to this vibrant whirlwind is unique, surprising and memorable. A far cry from the world of impressive façades and museum-style properties, Giscours is a fully immersive experience, offering a captivating and authentic atmosphere.

This exceptional combination of life and wine makes Giscours a spectacular experience.
