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.

Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet black cherry, scorched earth, and camphor n... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
