Winemaker's Notes

The recent vintages of Chateau Boyd-Cantenac are dark and dense, with complex aromas of fruit, enhanced by the barrel and bottle aging. In the mouth, the entry is supple and progressive; then comes a mouth filling volume, and at the end, the ripe tannins assure excellent aging capability. The general balance is always harmonious, more aromatic, mouth filling and elegant than powerful, which is characteristic of the traditional Margaux.

Critical Acclaim

"The dense purple-hued 2009 exhibits a beautiful nose of blueberry liqueur, acacia flowers, licorice, graphite and wood smoke. Flowery and elegant as well as exceptionally pure, medium to full-bodied, admirably concentrated and rich, it is a big Margaux, but does not lose any of the typicity one expects of wines from this area, which tend to be slightly more elegant and less muscular than the St.-Juliens, Pauillacs and St.-Estephes made further north. Given its tannin profile, the 2009 Boyd-Cantenac requires 5-8 years of cellaring and should last for three decades."
