Chat Greysac Medoc Cru Boug 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Greysac is one of our favorite unsung heroes of Bordeaux with its characteristic aromatic finesse combined with a full body and sumptuous fruit which makes it delicious on release, but it does gain elegance and complexity over a few years of aging. "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."-Wine Spectator

Château Greysac:
Standing on the gravel hummocks of the hamlet of By, Château Greysac has developed immensely in the last thirty years. Its wines are a faithful reflection of this great terroir - delicate, aromatic and ample, as well as elegant and complex.

Great, bold, earthy, with gobs of grape/boysenberry/plum jam. Dark and opaque garnet/purple color, with a long finish. A bit of earth and mineral. Very Nice - somehow epitomizes French wine.

Chateau Greysac 2006 - 87 Points, Wine Spectator/ Aromas of currant and gun metal. Medium-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and silky tannins…will turn out very well for the vintage.
