Winemaker's Notes

The characteristic style of Greysac is one of great aromatic finesse combined with good, full body. This complementarity produces wines with straightforward, clean flavors and sumptuous fruit which acquire elegance and complexity over time.

Critical Acclaim

"One of the largest Médoc estates, with 230 acres of vines, Greysac is a good, reliable source of classically styled Bordeaux. The style has become more modern in recent years, with an increased use of new wood, as in this 2004, which currently dominates. Enjoy it now for its toasty character, or wait for it to calm down."

I was literally blown away by the '03 Greysac. One of the best values to come out of Bordeaux in a very long time. 2004 was not a great growing year, but it wasn't poor either (just not as grand as 03 & 05). The 04 seems to have a touch more than one would want of Brettanomyces; leaving the nose meaty, mushroomy and lacking of fruit. The finish is off, the wine very tight up front and falling apart on the tail end (I suspect due to the Brett). We tasted through two of the '04, seems to be an overall flaw. Nevertheless, I'm biased in my love of the '03 Greysac. This wine is not completely flawed and if one is looking for an example of a left bank bordeaux, that's affordable in price with some unique Medoc qualities--it can be found here.
