"Sleek, with racy damson plum, cassis and spice notes carried by hints of licorice and sweet tobacco. Features a light mineral edge on the finish."
Robert Parker 88
"One of the best wines from this property, which established itself in the American marketplace 30 years ago, this blend of 58% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest the other two well-known varietals, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, is soft, round and generous, with loads of berry fruit, some licorice, roasted herbs and spice box. It is a very attractive, supple wine to drink over the next 5-7 years."
"Usually almost equal parts Cabernet and Merlot, Greysac is the benchmark Bordeaux for many U.S. consumers. Under its ample fruit and fragrance lies the classic tannic structure that imparts both balance and great longevity. Classic complement to grilled red meats, roast or braised beef, and lamb prepared in any style. With age, it is a fine partner for ripe cheeses. "~ Winery notes
"Jean Guyon said 'Château Greysac enjoys the same exceptional soils that have made the reputation of Château Haut Condissas and Château Rollan de By, soils having demonstrated their quality.'
Old Town : 'We owned Château Greysac for nearly 40 years and are pleased to sell it to Domaines Rollan de By, who brings together two beautiful vineyards in a single very coherent estate on all of the best vineyards of Medoc and will continue to produce wines of excellent quality'."
Château GreysacView all from Château Greysac
Classified as Médoc Cru Bourgeois, Château Greysac has been a member of the elite Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux since 1982. Today, its full-bodied, well-structured wines are synonymous with classic Bordeaux at an affordable price. The Château's characteristic style is indeed one of great aromatic finesse, combined with precise, sumptuous fruit flavors that develop in elegance and complexity over time.
Château Greysac, located in the Médoc hamlet of Begadan, north of St. Estèphe, was built in the 1700s. For many years, the property belonged to the late Baron François de Gunzburg. In 1975, the property was sold to the Agnelli family, which transformed the estate and its winemaking capabilities significantly. Château Greysac was purchased by Jean Guyon, owner of Domaine Rollan de By, in 2012 joining their exciting portfolio of Bordeaux wines.
The land area of Château Greysac totals 235 acres, of which 173 acres are planted to vine. The vineyards, based in predominantly gravel soils, are comprised of approximately 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot; vines have an average age of 25 years. Wine sold under the Greysac name is very carefully selected and is rarely over 70% of total production.
