Chat Greysac Medoc Cru Boug 2009
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
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.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
