2009 Boyd-Cantenac, Margaux

SKU #1434353 92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Classic nose, with intense cassis fruit, and a good deal of new oak that is stylishly integrated. Shows the fragrance of Margaux and very good vineyard depth. Has the opulence of the vintage without being too obvious and one-dimensional. (panel tasting) Inner quote mark

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The dense purple-hued 2009 exhibits a beautiful nose of blueberry liqueur, acacia flowers, licorice, graphite and wood smoke. Flowery and elegant as well as exceptionally pure, medium to full-bodied, admirably concentrated and rich, it is a big Margaux, but does not lose any of the typicity one expects of wines from this area, which tend to be slightly more elegant and less muscular than the St.-Juliens, Pauillacs and St.-Estephes made further north. Given its tannin profile, the 2009 Boyd-Cantenac requires 5-8 years of cellaring and should last for three decades. This property merits far more attention than it normally receives. While the production at Boyd-Cantenac does not match that of Margaux’s larger estates, this estate consistently over-achieves. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2011)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2009 Boyd-Cantenac is rather sultry on the nose, well defined, classic in style and certainly one of the more elegant Left Banks. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, slightly lower in acidity than its peers, rounded in texture with quite plush, velvety smooth plummy fruit on the finish. Maybe not long-term but this is well crafted. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)
