Château Greysac 2011 - Médoc Cru Bourgeois

Château Greysac is THE cru bourgeois to watch at the moment. According to Wine Advocate it is "one of the best Crus Bourgeois you can buy", and we could not agree more. Unanimously praised by wine critics, this 2011 is a soft and round red with aromas of black cherries, with a beautiful balance and hints of cedar brought by oak barrels. Great value Médoc!

What experts say  
  
15.5/20 "Dark greyish crimson. Sweet, rich dark fruit on the nose, very lightly herbaceous. Just a little dusty. Seems pretty gentle on the palate though there's a firm underlying structure there. Moderate length, not much follow through."
 
  
  
86/100 "I 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."
  
  
88/100 "Solid 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."
  
  
15/20 "Nicely structured wine according to Jean Guyon's style, i.e. relatively wooden and tannic. The Château is finding its own style year after year."
