Chateau Boyd-Cantenac – Margaux 2010
Wonderfully expressed Cabernet Sauvignon aromas, superb texture, a powerful wine that is still elegant, great future and probably the best ever from this understated chateau. An opaque blue/purple color is accompanied by impressively sweet floral notes intermixed with black currant and blackberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied with high but round tannins, the 2010 Boyd-Cantenac is exceptionally well-endowed, textured and pure.
