Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Delicious Bordeaux Superieur, Chateau La Croix de Queynac 2016 reveals aromas of cherry, raspberry, black pepper, leather, spice and cedar. Made from Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, this medium-bodied wine delivers well-dosed acidity, perfect for food pairing. Its tannins are supple, and its finish is long and fruity. Palate: tart cherry, raspberry, bay leaf, truffle, incense and cedar. Enjoy!
Château La Croix De Queynac 2016 is a supply and smooth red wine blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Lovely ripe plum, blueberry, cassis, cinnamon, clove and savoury herb flavours on the palate. Tannins are fine and there is food-friendly acidity for rich dishes like duck confit and roast chicken. Lovely now, better in 2022 when this Bordeaux red blend begins to show its best. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
