Chateau Greysac Medoc 2012
Not Vintage Specific
Item Number: 25077
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
