Picked this up at auction.  It is the finest Giscours I have ever had.  There were tastes of blackberry and cassis, with smoke and earth.  It was spicy and full-bodied with an incredible texture, and a long, pure finish.  If you want a 2000 Bordeaux at a reasonable price this is one to purchase.

WOW. These Gisours Bordeaux's are gorges wines. They have a sex appeal to them that makes them had to resist. They are full of flavor and elegance as well as some really awesome aromas.

I liked this wine so much I wrote a poem about here it goes.

As I look upon you with a gaze you lure me into your deep dark colors and all of a sudden your dark purple coat covers me. I'm hooked. With a gentle pull you bring me it you. You tease me with aromas of black berries and licorice. Then there is some spice and a violet that tops it all off. I try my best to hold back. Until I can't resist you anymore I must taste you. So like a gentleman I slowly bring you to my lips and gently I drink you in. At first you did nothing until like a cunning hunter you attacked my palate with a gentle elegant display of your soft and smooth texture. You showed your purity and mature when you ended it all with the elegance and grace of a well seasoned dancer.

There you have that's my poem abut this wine.

The day was 8-1-2003. I remember it very clearly. It was the first day of school for me. I was going back to school to get my master degree in environmental studies.

When I got home I needed a drink. :-) and am I ever glad I chose this wine it had such a nice texture and the perfect full body needed to make feel like I was having a real drink and just a glass of wine. If I was to make the call I would say this wine was beefy.

I'm not sure if that's a real term used to describe wine. If it's not it should be. What I mean by beefy is that this wine felt like it could hold its own.

The dinner bell rang and I came running in from outside. I felt like I was a kid again. I come running into the kitchen and saw my mom there cooking .The smell of meatloaf filled the house and made it feel even more like I just stepped in to a time warp and went back to when I was about 10 years old..

Let me explain. My mom came over and she insisted that she cook dinner for all of us. I was tired so I agreed. She hurried me outside just like when I was a kid.

We have this cool bell that we ring when dinner is ready it's been in my family for over 50 years.

It's a tradition. So when she rang that bell it reminded me of when I was young and she would ring it all the time.

We sat down to eat and we shared some wine that was VERY good and a conversation that was even better.

This wine is ok. It has a kind of boarding flavor to it. Don't get me wrong it's not bad, it's just boarding. It is balanced and has a nice texture.

This wine has some nice flavor to it and an ok aroma it is kind of weak. What dose come out is spicy wood, currants, and herbs. This wine might be nice with some pasta and a nice salad.
