Château Greysac Médoc 2011 Bordeaux Red Wine, $17.99-$19.99, 91 points, poured a lovely ruby grading purple/red toward the clear wine ring and heavily draped glass bowl.
Aromatic black fruit, mint, and a soft floral bouquet were excellent.
Medium-plus body carried good acidity, grainy supportive tannins, and excellent flavors of plums, citrus, tobacco, and blackberries.
Finished well on the trailing palate, warm spices, and a balanced (reasonable:) 14% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with Debbie's American chop suey with peeled plum tomatoes.
This Château Greysac was far above the price-point for such a good Bordeaux, and I'm so glad I recommend this wine to the gentlemen at the Bedford NHLS last week (you know who you are).
Varietals were 65% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot.
