Ch Giscours 2021 Margaux

16.5

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot. Cask sample.
Very dark purplish crimson. One of the first 2021s I have encountered that could be described as heady. Then has masses of both fruit and freshness on the palate with no excesses even if clear delineation. Very clean and brisk without being austere. Quite a success! This wine seems to have made a virtue out of the freshness of 2021.
