Château Greysac, located in the Médoc hamlet of Begadan, north of St. Estephe, was built in the 1700’s and has enjoyed a storied history. The estate was purchased by Jean Guyon, owner of Domaines Rollan de By, in 2012. Today, the chateau’s characteristic style is one of great aromatic finesse, combined with precise, sumptuous fruit flavors that develop in elegance and complexity over time.
Château Greysac is a beautiful mansion built during the 18th century that inspires French elegance and finesse. Some of its most famous owners have included Georges Héreil, the engineer who created the Caravelle plane, and the Italian Agnelli family, owners of Ferrari and Fiat, before Jean Guyon fell in love with it in 2012 and decided to bring it to its prime.
Located on the edge of the Gironde, its soil is composed of rolled pebble quaternary soil and a clay-limestone subsoil. Understanding and observation of the terroir is the key to success at this Château.
Interior designer immersed since the beginning of his career in the artistic world , Jean Guyon redecorated sumptuous residences and palaces throughout the world. It was during a visit to the Medoc that he discovered their exceptional terroirs. Self-taught, passionate and attentive to every detail, he embarked on a winemaking journey with the simple ambition of making pleasure wines for his friends. For the last three decades he has been crafting wines full of authenticity, individuality and finesse; so many characteristics that are found throughout the entire range of Domaines Rollan de By – Jean Guyon.
