Chateau Greysac Médoc 2011
Wine EnthusiastWhile this is a firm wine, full of dry tannins and smoky wood-aging flavors, it also has plenty of ripe and juicy fruit. Red berry and black currant show strongly, filling the wine out and promising roundness as it ages. Drink from 2017.
Wine SpectatorSolid plum and cassis fruit is lined with roasted cedar and tobacco notes. A cedary hint imparts a pleasant texture on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 43,915 cases made.
Wine AdvocateI drank a lot of Greysac in college when it was owned by the late Baron Gunzberg. The soft, fruity, round, charming 2011 (65% Merlot, followed by mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) is everything a Cru Bourgeois should be. The current proprietor, Jean Guyon, has made this property one that should be seriously considered by consumers. Drink the 2011 over the next 4-6 years.
