The Estate

The Boyds were an important family of Belfast traders originating from Scotland. All along their history they retained a tradition of commerce and international relations as well as emigration. They were present in Bordeaux as early as the 17th century and it was Jacques Boyd who gave his name to the vineyard in Cantenac when he acquired it in 1754.

The estate was subsequently purchased, in 1806, by John Lewis Brown, of Château Brown, who was related to the Boyd family by marriage.

The 1855 classification consecrated the Cru of Boyd-Cantenac and its capacity to produce, over more than one century, wines of international class.

 Since 1932, Château Boyd-Cantenac has belonged to the Guillemet family.


81% cabernet-sauvignon, 11% merlot, 6% petit-verdot, 2% cabernet-franc.

Tasting Notes

The hue is dense and young, with a young purple tint. Aromas are clean, intense, complex and especially elegant. The cabernet dominates, with black currents and much freshness. Spices from barrel ageing are still sticking out (mint, vanilla…).

On the palate, the first impression is of aromatic complexity, suppleness and freshness. It begins progressively, before a good mouthfill, wrapped in a train of complex aromas. Its finish is long, with very elegant, fruity and
complex aromas. The abundant tannin is very smooth and noble and guaranties a long ageing potential.

As a whole, this 2015 shows both extreme elegance and intensity, that are the characteristics of the great vintages of traditional Margaux wines.
