This is just classic Bordeaux. Big and deep on the nose with classic cassis, deep earthy tones and well integrated spice tones from the wood ageing all in harmony. In the mouth there are tons of fuzzy fruit tannins and good acidity supporting a mass of plush ripe fruit. This may lack a touch of Margaux typicity, though that may come with time, but the cassis and wild black raspberry fruit is complemented by lovely notes of earth and mineral with an animale note on the back end that keeps this just a touch sauvage. A bit of refreshing acidity pokes out on the finish which is long and very pure with a touch of wood spice return on the finale. Compelling bordeaux and at great value in this vintage. Bordeaux as it used to be! This should live a long and storied life. 2013-2030 95pts

One of the best Margauxs of the 05 vintage for early consumption, in addition to keeping locked up in the cellar for decades. Loads of dark, smokey fruit. Good acidity and tannins that are solid, yet seductive, a long finish and a very memorable wine. Most of the bottles I bought, I already consumed, because it's just that good ! One of the best values in Bordeaux, as this is a very serious wine.

Offers loads of toasty oak and very ripe fruit, with hints of coffee and tobacco. Dark, full-bodied, rich and round, with beautifully textured tannins. Very long and caressing. Best after 2013. 6,000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Boyd-Cantenac 1500ml

This chateau, which is often under the radar (production is only 5,500–6,000 cases), has fashioned a terrific, inky/blue/purple-hued 2005 with a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers, creme de cassis, pain grille, and blueberries. Powerful and concentrated with full-bodied richness, stunning purity, and a tannic, 40+-second finish, this beauty requires patience. Anticipated maturity: 2017–2030+.

Boyd-Cantenac consistently fashions powerful clarets that often fly under the radar of consumers. That’s a shame as Bordeaux lovers should be purchasing it as it is one of the least expensive cru classes in the marketplace. An inky/purple color is followed by aromas of pen ink, blackberries, cassis, licorice, spring flowers, and truffles. Powerful and dense, with fabulous intensity, purity, structure, and tannin, like many of these muscular 2005s, this classic will require patience. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2030+.

[Barrel tasting] Lots of blackberry, spice, tar and licorice. Full-bodied, thick and rich. This is very dense. Pure fruit. Best ever from here.
