What experts say  
  

87/100 "From the flagship property of proprietor Jean Guyon, the 2011 Rollan de By is a blend of 70% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot. Of nearly classified growth quality, it boasts attractive cedary, spicy, licorice, black currant and tobacco leaf notes along with medium body. While it does not have the power or richness of such great vintages as 2010 and 2009, there is a lot to like about this beautiful Medoc. A sleeper of the vintage, it can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years."

  
  

16.5/20 "70% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot. Attractive nose with good complexity – some classic claret characteristics (cedar, cigar, cassis) on show here. Smooth and succulent. A good example: typical Bordeaux with sensitive winemaking and an expressive, satisfying palate."

  
  16.5/20 "This has a lively, pebbly feel, with juicy acidity running in and around the bright cherry, red currant and floral notes. A sanguine edge lines the finish."

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!

Château de By 2010 is the typical simple Médoc made during a great vintage: a nose of black berry jam with a minty touch and a supple palate with well integrated tannins. Finish is surprisingly long for this category of wine, reflecting the perfect conditions of the 2010 vintage - which is already a myth in Bordeaux. A simple but well-made Médoc for...
