Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

From Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux, West of Saint-Emilion, come this Bordeaux AOC, Chateau Hyot 2014. Winner of multiple prizes, this wine is blended from 60% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This Right Bank wine offers aromas of dark plum, dark cherry, fresh cut grass, pepper baking spice and cedar. Medium bodied with a mellow finish, Chateau Hyot shows nice balance for a young wine. In the mouth, dark skin plum, violet, fresh herbs, pepper and cedar are present. Easy-drinking for any occasion and affordable, Chateau Hyot will expose its terroir to any Bordeaux connoisseur. Enjoy.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Utterly delightful and approachable for 2014. Pretty cherry, damson plum, dried blackberry and currant notes along with flowers, chalk, grape must and clean wood notes. Lovey now but better in 2019-2020. 90 Points
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted June 24, 2018. Colour ruby red. Legs medium. Aromas and flavours of, black cherry, black currant, cedar, vanilla notes. Taste dry black and red fruit, full bodied, grippy grainy spicy tannin, mouthwatering minus. Finish long tea bag tannin on he finish. Ok, this wine is a good value wine. Worth the try if you are on a budget. We drank this wine with a rare Chateaubriand, baked russet potatoe and green beans. The meat and wine was a match.

Natalie's Review

Château Hyot 2014, Côtes De Bordeaux Castillon, Bordeaux A.C, France: Pleasantly bitter black fruit and mouth-watering acidity. Full-bodied and juicy Bordeaux red wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. Great for steak, especially at this price. Drink: 2018-2022. 63537 13% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 89/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

The Financial Times of London

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.
