Château Greysac, located in the Médoc hamlet of Begadan, north of St. Estephe, was built in the 1700’s. For many years, the property belonged to the late Baron Francois 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. Today, the chateau’s characteristic style is one of great aromatic finesse, combined with precise, sumptuous fruit flavors that develop in elegance and complexity over time.

 

APPELLATION

Medoc (Bordeaux), France

TERROIR NOTES

WINEMAKING

Pre-fermentation maceration lasts two days and cuvaison for 4–5 weeks after alcoholic fermentation in thermo regulated stainless steel and cement tanks. Malolactic fermentation is in oak. AGEING Lees stirring for three months, then aged for 12 months (50% in one year old French oak barrels and 50% in tanks).

 

TASTING NOTES

This vintage presents a beautiful fruity expression accompanied by a lot of freshness. The tannins are supple and elegant, round and balanced. Deep ruby garnet with red berry flavors combined with notes of spice, chocolate and bell pepper in the background. Pairs with all meats, poultry, wild mushrooms and strong cheeses.

 

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

V89, Vinous

"The 2017 Greysac has a generous, quite high-toned and iodine-tinged bouquet that gathers momentum in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit laced with tar and tobacco, becoming more introverted towards the linear finish that suggests it will require three or four years in bottle. But there is certainly good substance here and it should give a decade’s worth of drinking pleasure."
