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

Neal Martin writes:  The 2017 Greysac has a generous, quite high-toned and iodine-tinged bouquet that gathers momentum in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit laced with tar and tobacco, becoming more introverted towards the linear finish that suggests it will require three or four years in bottle. But there is certainly good substance here and it should give a decade’s worth of drinking pleasure.  - Vinous 89-91

Jane Anson writes:  Another Jean Guyon estate displaying the characteristic slick finish, with some damson and vanilla bean edging. This has a good level of cinnamon spice, but the finish is tight and a little drying. It will offer lots of pleasure in the near to medium term.  - Decanter

James Molesworth writes:  Sanguine and tea notes lead the way in this slightly mature version, with gently mulled red currant and damson plum flavors. Reveals a lingering cedar edge on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.   - Wine Spectator
