Château Greysac is located in the Médoc hamlet of Bégadan, just north of St-Estephe, and its history dates back to the late 1700's. Some famous people have resided there, including the engineer George Héreil, who created the Caravelle plane [one of the groundbreaking aircraft that pioneered jet aviation]. In 1975 the estate was owned by Baron Francois Gunzburg, and he sold it on to the Agnelli family [owners of Ferrari and Fiat], who in turn sold it to the present owner Jean Guyon in 2012. Guyon is a self-taught winemaker whose wine journey began in 1989 when he purchased the 2 hectare Chateau Rollan de By estate in Bégadan. And then he just kept on buying, adding Château Haut Condissas , Château Tour Seran , Château La Clare , Château La Rose de By  and in 2012, the year he acquired Château Greysac, Guyon also added Château de By and Château de Monthil to his portfolio. Together these properties comprise 185 hectares and form “Domaines Rollan de By – Jean Guyon”. What started off as an ambition to make pleasurable wines for his friends has evolved into a business with a prestigious reputation, and Guyon is passionate and attentive to every detail. There are 70 hectares under vine planted with 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, on gravel, clay and limestone soils. The average age of the vines is 25 years. The wine is matured for 12 months in oak, 20% new. The Greysac style is one of aromatic subtleties and sumptuous fruit that develop into complex wines with finesse and elegance.
