Château La Croix de Queynac is HVE (High Environmental Value) certified.
The vintage
The 2019 vintage is one of the great vintages. A too mild winter balanced by a very cool spring and frost warnings from late March to mid-May that scared all Bordeaux winemakers, fortunately without damage. The flowering took place without incident but it was then necessary to face the great heats of summer, which were miraculously balanced by heavy rains during this summer season. It has given the grapes the freshness and strength they need before they are harvested.
Terroir
The estate is located in Bordeaux, 42 hectares located in Galgon near the Fronsac appellation. The vines are grown on silty, gravelly soils.
In the vineyard
The cultivation methods are typical of Bordeaux, while respecting the protocol of the reasoned agriculture: Guyot pruning, soil grassed and worked by alternating, leaf removal.
Vinification
