Château Boyd-Cantenac 2017: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

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 ageing period. A superbly distinctive Margaux wine, revealing the purity of a fruity aromatic freshness.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Boyd-Cantenac gives pronounced cassis, stewed plums and cedar with earthy undertones and an herbal waft. It has a chewy frame, and the oak stands out on the palate, finishing with a good core of mid-palate flesh.
