Chateau Greysac Medoc Cru Boug 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Usually almost equal parts Cabernet and Merlot, Greysac is the benchmark Bordeaux for many U.S. consumers. Under its ample fruit and fragrance lies the classic tannic structure that imparts both balance and great longevity. Classic complement to grilled red meats, roast or braised beef, and lamb prepared in any style. With age, it is a fine partner for ripe cheeses.

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.

very nice nose of pure red fruits, red meat, currants, leather, spices, fresh and with finesse. Very nice wine, but needs another dimension/ more staying power. When offered for under $15, still a treat to recommend.

Nice wine. Opens up quickly with cherries/cassis and soft leather. Nose is classic Bordeaux as is the taste really. Finish is a little light but there are tannins in there. Very good food versitile food wine

Lots of Sumatra Coffee on the nose with the usual dry red fruit - though not exactly expressive. Light tannins balanced fairly evenly with refreshing acidity with more tart, wild red berry notes on the flavor profile interspersed with more bold coffee. Some residual tannin on the medium to long finish. A solid Medoc if undistinguished but still hitting well within its weight class. Try with food. Will keep another 2-3 years.

The wine itself is a deep ruby in the glass, and the nose is just pure Bordeaux, with the classic "Bordeaux funk" as some people have called it, a somewhat musty, combination of black fruit, leather, anise and dried spices that combine create a very memorable aroma of funk! Though I'll admit, after a bit of air, or some decanting, the funk dissipates and you're left with great aromas of ripe black fruit, leather and anise. The taste is quite complex, with a rush or ripe fruit, particularly cherries at the front, then we transition to just the slightest bit of cedar and mint midpalate, which goes quite quickly. The finish is supported by some well structured tannins, as well as some notes of gravel and earth in the long, exceptionally dry finish.

reveals hints of sweet cherries, figs, plums, and smoky licorice along with supple tannin, a beautiful texture, medium body, and no hard edges.

From a classic Cabernet vintage, this quintessential Médoc Bordeaux is deeply colored, with pleasant aromas of plummy fruit, chocolate and earth. The tannins are firm, but balanced nicely by the wine's fleshy ripeness. This wine will age nicely for 5 to 7 years, but is drinking nicely now with a good decanting. A fine match for roast leg of lamb.
