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

Probably the finest Boyd-Cantenac I have tasted in decades, the 2000 offers an opaque ruby/purple color in addition to a moderately intense bouquet of underbrush, cassis, earth, and oak. The wine is moderately tannic, but the tannin is sweet and well... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Boyd-Cantenac 750ml

Probably the finest Boyd-Cantenac I have tasted in decades the 2000 offers an opaque ruby/purple color in addition to a moderately intense bouquet of underbrush cassis earth and oak. The wine is moderately tannic but the tannin is sweet and well-integrated. This is a medium to full-bodied substantial effort with good cellaring potential. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018.
