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.

Not following changing and short-lived fashions, Boyd-Catntenac remains true to the style of traditional Margaux wines. Read less
