Created 1754 by Jacques Boyd, of Irish origin, the estate was purchased by John Lewis BROWN in 1806, who was related to the Boyd family by marriage. Since the wines from Boyd-Cantenac had been recognised and traded for a century, in 1855 the Château was classified Third Growth, in the Grand Cru classification of the Bordeaux wines. The estate belonged to the Ginestet family, once owner of Chateu Margaux, before coming to the current owners in the early 1930s. After the economic crisis which greatly affected the vineyards after the first world war, Pierre Guillemet brought Botd-Cantenac back to life in the sixties. Since, its wines regularly bring their contribution to the Art of Living and to the expression of the terroir of Margaux. Not following changing and short-lived fashions, Boyd-Catntenac remains true to the style of traditional Margaux wines. Read less

Always a sleeper from Margaux. Dark ruby in color, with an inky center. Full-bodied, very tannic and mouthpuckering, with loads of blackberry and earth aromas. Will improve with age.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal. Drink now through 2006. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1982 Boyd-Cantenac 750ml

Coming from a benchmark vintage, this wine show fine maturity with notes of tobacco leaf, dried berry fruit, and a strong mineral finish.
