Chateau Greysac Medoc Premier 2010
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.
Editorial Reviews for Chateau Greysac Medoc Premier
A touch twiggy on the nose with some fresh rubber sneaker base notes over which one finds lightly perfumed and gently sweet red berry fruit. Still youthful and a touch tight, this shows off attractive black currant and herb flavors that seem to be molded around a sweeter core of cocoa and ripe black and red fruits. The tannins offer a nice firm base for the fruit but remain fully covered by the fruit as well, with acidity that keeps this fresh and bright in the mouth. The finish shows decent length with tangy plum skin flavors and earthy cherry and herb nuances that are fairly persistent with a pop of peppery oak spice on the finale. On the simple side, but a solid little Bordeaux. 85pts
Tight on the nose with notes of raw nuts, fresh oak, and leafy black currant fruit topped with a touch of cigar smoke and tomato leaf. Fresh on the palate, but lacks a bit of depth and flavor on the mid palate. The balance of flavors is attractive, offering up notes of earth, forest floor, black currants, lightly dried herbs and a bit of milky wood on the back end, but lacks some intensity. The finish is short and mostly toasty with some licorice notes. 82pts
Treebark, blackberry jam and a touch of woodsy spice on the nose – a bit extracted feeling, hard tannins, not enough flesh, some fruit, quite savory and a touch minty (83-84)
The nose is classic Medoc with blackberry and elements of Kirsch with a dollop of coffee. Entry is once again brambleberry and cherry with a little bitter coffee on the finish which is medium length. Tannins present, good acidity for a few years cellaring. Value. 87 points.
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.
A 2008 Bordeaux blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot from Medoc, France. Deep ruby color with tight rim variation. Dark fruits hints of plum and blackberry with a hint of cocca. It has a long finish on the palette and balanced acidity. This wine will mature nicely over time (peak time 2016-2020). Best served chilled to 60 degrees, double decanted and served with a grilled pork loin dish.
Great bang for your buck! Old world in typical bordeaux style without as much complexity as the higher end Bordeauxs. Little fruit present but a hint of black cherry. Mature tannins with a long oakey finish. Good with flank steak or fiatas.
Nicely priced Bordeaux for everyday drinking. Good red fruit characteristics with a touch of cedar
External Reviews for Chateau Greysac Medoc Premier
Deep ruby-garnet color. The bouquet is of fresh red berries, mingled with notes of cedar and spice. On the palate are lovely red fruits, with full rich flavors balanced by silky tannins.
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.
Chateau Greysac 2005 - 89 Points, Wine Spectator/ Has a very pretty nose of Indian spices, currant and Christmas pudding. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a long, caressing finish.
Château Greysac, located in the Médoc hamlet of Begadan, north of St. Estèphe, was built in the 1700s. For many years it was the property of the late Baron François de Gunzburg, and since 1975 it has been owned by the Agnelli family. The Agnellis completely transformed the development of the estate and its winemaking capabilities. Château Greysac is produced by Greysac SAS. The President is Count Brandino Brandolini d’Adda, owner of the renowned Vistorta estate in Italy’s Friuli region. The Chief Executive is Philippe Dambrine and the Director is Stéphane Pariaud. Classified as Médoc Cru Bourgeois, Château Greysac has been a member of the elite Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux since 1982. Château Greysac has become synonymous with classic Bordeaux style at an affordable price. Production Area Bordeaux, France. Gunzian gravel on a clay-limestone base; Average age of vines 25 years.

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