A pretty and racy red with blueberry and blackberry aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Dark chocolate and cool fruit. Second wine of Giscours.

The 2015 La Sirene de Giscours is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. It has a crisp, quite pure black cherry, raspberry coulis and cedar-scented bouquet that gently unfolds in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with good depth for a deuxieme vin, the 30% new oak nicely integrated with good depth and grip on the graphite and spice-tinged finish. This is worth seeking out - the best La Sirene de Giscours to date, but those with a wise head will give it 2-3 years in bottle.
