Wine Advocate 87
"Now owned by proprietor Jean Guyon, this blend of 65 Merlot, 29 Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc comes from the treasure trove of cru bourgeois wines, the northern Medoc village of Begadan. Complex notes of lead pencil shavings, earth, black and red currants and spice are all present in this relatively evolved, soft, medium-bodied 2012. It should drink nicely for another 7-8 years. On a personal note, I drank enormous quantities of Greysac when it was under the ownership of Baron Gunzberg in the 1970s and 1980s, as it was often available for 5.00 to 6.00 a bottle! This is definitely a sleeper of the vintage."
"The 2012 Greysac is a pretty wine, but it also comes across as a bit lacking in depth, especially as the mid-palate leads into the finish. Savory herbs, earthiness, tobacco, smoke, licorice and incense all meld together in a hearty Cru Bourgeois to drink over the next few years. The blend is 65 Merlot, 32 Cabernet Sauvignon and 3 Petit Verdot. "
"The Chateau Greysac is deep ruby-garnet in color. Aromas of fresh red berries, mingled with notes of cedar and spice fill the glass. The palate is filled with lovely red fruits, with full rich flavors balanced by silky tannins." ~Winery Notes
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.
