COMMENTS
The wines of Château Boyd-Cantenac have a color that shows shades of purple, often dense and dark. Their nose is fruity, and marked by the wood of the aging in barrels.
On the palate, they are velvety on the attack, voluminous, fleshy, with a progressive and long finish, where the tannins are very present. The whole still shows a very beautiful harmony, more elegant and aromatic than powerful, characteristic of traditional MARGAUX
