James Suckling writes:  Some nice, floral character to the plum and berry aromas and flavors. Some leaves. Medium-bodied with medium, polished tannins and a medium finish. Drink or hold.  - James Suckling 90

Neal Martin writes:  The 2018 Greysac has a well-defined bouquet of wild strawberry and raspberry fruit laced with cigar box and smoky aromas. The finely balanced palate offers sappy red fruit laced with black pepper and tobacco. I admire the cohesion here, and there is fine weight on the finish. Definitely a cut above a lot of Cru Bourgeois Médocs, though it deserves 2–3 years in bottle.  Drinking 2023 - 2030.   - Vinous 

James Lawther MW writes:  Big and bold with plenty of dark fruit and chocolatey oak. Sweet and generous on the palate, the oak again evident but integrated and the fruit present. Perhaps more winemaking than terroir.  Drinking 2023 -2028.  - Jancis Robinson 15.5

2017 Vintage Reveiws:

Julia Harding writes:  Deep cherry red. Rocky dark fruit, smells dry even before you taste it – there’s no hint of sweetness. Compact in both flavour and tannin texture. Fine dark fruit, lightly spiced but tastes like fruit spice not oak spice. Just a little peppery. Firm, chewy but fully ripe tannins. Respectable but not notable acidity.   - Jancis Robinson 16
