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

Seit einiger Zeit gehört das etwas in Vergessenheit geratene Château wieder zur Elite der klassierten Weine. Die Besitzerfamilie Guillemet hat dafür Zeit und Geld investiert. Bereits in der Nase zeigt sich das Potenzial: reife Fruchtaromen in Kombination mit klassisch-herben Noten, die uns an Tabak, Leder und Pfeffer denken lassen. Die griffige Gerbstofftextur verbindet sich mit der fruchtigen Struktur zu einem dichten, gehaltvollen Körper. Das Finale ist anhaltend und präsentiert sich nach einigen Jahren der Flaschenreife harmonisch und ausgewogen, ganz wie es sich für einen klassischen Bordeaux gehört.
