Chateau Boyd-Cantenac 2017 is a Margaux wine made from a 17-hectare vineyard located in the heart of the appellation. The vines are 38 years old on average and are planted on siliceous gravel.
The vineyards of Chateau Boyd-Cantenac were not spared by the frosts at the end of April 2017, and the Merlot grapes were particularly affected.
Cabernet Sauvignon (76%)
Cabernet Franc (7%)
Petit Verdot (6%).
Silky and velvety, the gourmet tannins coat the palate with a typical Margaux mouthfeel, while the Cabernets give the wine an elegant structure, enhancing the depth of the fruit on the mid-palate. The slight astringency on the finish resonates with the aging period. A superbly distinctive Margaux wine, revealing the purity of a fruity aromatic freshness.
