Médoc Cru Bourgeois
Jean Luc Marteau
Château Greysac is a beautiful mansion built during the 18th century that inspires elegance and finesse. Some of its most famous owners include Georges Héreil, the engineer who created the Caravelle plane or the Agnelli family, owners of Ferrari and Fiat. Jean Guyon fell in love with the estate in 2012 and was determined to bring the estate to its prime. Located on the edge of the Gironde, its soil is composed of rolled pebble quaternary soil with a clay- limestone undercoat. Understanding and observation of the terroir is the success of this Château.WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
The vineyards are located on a clay-gravel hilltop terroir. The vines are on average 30 years old with a vine density of 7,500 plants per hectare. Double Guyot pruning is performed. Sustainable farming is practiced with well-looked-after soil and enherbed rows. 2010 was a relatively dry and cool year. The grapes were hand-picked and then sorted twice on arrival at the winery, first on vibrating sorting tables and then manually. Cold pre-fermentation maceration takes place in stainless steel and cement thermo-regulated tanks; vatting lasts for four to five weeks. A malolactic fermentation takes then place in tanks.TASTING NOTES
The wine is full of ripe blackcurrant and black cherry, with racy tannins; balance and a great acidity means the wines will keep well. Structure-driven with great fruit definition... the main characters of a great vintage.
