A sensational effort for the vintage, Boyd-Cantenac‘s 2004 should be on the shopping lists of all shrewd consumers looking for a terrific Margaux at a bargain basement price. Racy floral, black currant, and cherry notes soar from the glass of this complex wine. The evolved aromatics are followed by sweet, medium to full-bodied, pure flavors of cherries, black currants, and blackberries, ripe, moderate tannins, and outstanding depth as well as richness. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022. Wine Advocate.June, 2007
Delicately toasty cassis fruit on the nose but slightly hard and a bit disappointing on the palate though there’s some juicy fruit lurking underneath so maybe it will improve. Julia Harding, www.jancisrobinson.com, 17 Feb 2009
Blackberry and grape aromas follow through to a medium body, with medium tannins and a medium finish. Needs a bit more fruit on the center palate, but still a pleasant bottle. Best after 2008. 5,000 cases made. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2007.
