BACKGROUND

Château Greysac, located in the Médoc hamlet of Begadan, north of St. Estephe, was built in the 1700’s. For many years, the property belonged to the late Baron Francois de Gunzburg. In 1975, the property was sold to the Agnelli family, which transformed the estate and its winemaking capabilities significantly. Château Greysac was purchased by Jean Guyon, owner of Domaine Rollan de By, in 2012, joining their exciting portfolio of Bordeaux wines.

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.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

Chateau Greyac’s 68 ha (168 acres) vineyard is located on a clay gravel hilltop. The vines are an average 35 years old, and the density is 7.500 plants per hectare with Double Guyot pruning. The vineyard is sustainably farmed.
The 2018 the weather was particularly conducive to producing perfectly ripe and healthy grapes. The grapes were harvested at their optimal ripeness, enabling each variety to reveal their full potential. A great vintage, with a brilliant color, notes of ripe fruit and beautiful concentration. The Cabernet wines are equally superb and well structured.

WINEMAKING & AGEING

Pre-fermentation maceration lasts two days and cuvaison for 4–5 weeks after alcoholic fermentation in thermo regulated stainless steel and cement tanks. Malolactic fermentation is in oak.

Lees stirring for three months, then aged for 12 months (50% in one year old French oak barrels and 50% in tanks).

TASTING NOTES

An elegant expression with ample plums and berries on the nose and palate, accented by a floral note. Medium-bodied with polished tannins, the wine a note of spice in the background. Pairs with all meats, poultry, wild mushrooms and strong cheeses.
