Château Boyd-Cantenac

It was in 1754 that Jacques Boyd, a merchant in Belfast, originally from Scotland, residing at Bordeaux in the Chartrons suburb who bought the lands from Sieur Bernard Sainvincens by Maître Deyrem and hastened to give them his name.

Later under the First Empire of Napoléon I in 1806 John Lewis Brown, allied by marriage to the Boyd family, already owners of Cantenac-Brown acquired Château and attached to it the name of the commune of Cantenac where the vineyard is located.

Château Boyd-Cantenac is a Third Grand Cru Classé according to the prestigious 1855 list

The vines, whose average age is 40 years, rest on a sandy-gravelly soil and subsoil of ancient quaternary gravel and is divided into Cabernet Sauvignon for 67%, Cabernet Franc 7%, petit Verdot 6%.

Annual production is around 80 barrels from a vineyard area of 17 hectares, or around 100,000 bottles in good years.

The grapes are harvested by hand, and the wine is aged in new barrels for around 15 to 18 months before bottling.

Description Château Boyd Cantenac 2022.

In April 2023, the wines show beautiful color, very dense.

They have, as they often do, a lot of freshness, in relation with good acidities. The tannins are of good quality, fine, ripe and very promising.

Boyd-Cantenac, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, shows intense, fresh, pure and ripe fruit.

The palate is fresh, aromatic, very balanced, with a very soft touch and a very present, ripe, fine, long and refined tannin.
