2012 Château Boyd-Cantenac  (Margaux) 90

Medium-bodied, forward and floral, with the additional nuances of espresso, smoke, dark cherries and thyme, the wine is round, and ready, although a few more years of cellaring could reduce the oak influence. 90 Points

2009 Château Boyd-Cantenac  (Margaux) 91

Like many 2009 Bordeaux wines, this is opulent, soft, polished and forward, with freshness and sweetness in the fruit. There is a touch too much oak, but that should in time fade into the all the sweet berries. This should be even better with a few years in the cellar. 2009 in Bordeaux is so good from top to bottom, it's silly. In fact, in Margaux, which is normally not the most consistent appellation, almost everyone seems to have made really good wine. 91 Points

2008 Château Boyd-Cantenac  (Margaux) 87

Tight, tannic and tough, with a fresh, dark red berry character, the wine is quite tannic for its depth and because of those drying tannins, this is on the stern side for a Margaux wine. 87 Points

2006 Château Boyd-Cantenac  (Margaux) 91

This is one of the more obscure Classified Growths from Margaux. I seldom see it. But tasting the 2006, makes me want to know it a bit better. Soft, round and open, with sweet, ripe fruits, earth, thyme, luscious black cherries to round this off. All that, and the wine is fairly priced too. 91 Points

Better on the nose, with its floral, earthy, black raspberry nose, than on the medium bodied, cherry and black raspberry, tannic finish. I'd give this a few more years to develop, but this is not going to be a miracle in the bottle wine that changes all that much with age. 88 Points

2005 Château Boyd-Cantenac  (Margaux) 92

Medium/full-bodied, the wine is expressive aromatically with its blend of dried flowers, red currants, and tobacco. There is some rusticity in the tannins which adds to the classically made style produced here. This is drinking well today, and it has a long future to look forward to, with at least another 15-20 more years of drinkability. 92 Points

With deep color, the wine offers a beautiful perfume of licorice, flowers, cassis, oak and earth. Full bodied, rich and concentrated, the supple wine ends with a long, round, cassis, spice and red plum filled finish. Give it a few more years to soften and come together. 91 Points

2004 Château Boyd-Cantenac  (Margaux) 90

This is a wine a seldom see. Perhaps that’s a mistake based on the elegant, tobacco, cherry, earth and floral charms in this wine. Instead of concentration, there is a finesse and softness that makes it a pleasure to drink. 90 Points

2000 Château Boyd-Cantenac  (Margaux) 91

Nice wine here. Silky, elegant soft and with some polish to the tannins. The sweet, red fruits, earth, tobacco and floral characteristics are easy to find. Medium bodied and refined, this is drinking quite nice today. 91 Points
