Product:

Chateau Boyd-Cantenac, Margaux, Bordeaux, 2009

Producer:

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Classic nose, with intense cassis fruit, and a good deal of new oak that is stylishly integrated. Plump, rounded and generous, broad-shouldered, and distinctly tannic, this has considerable spice and complexity as well as abundant fruit. Has the opulence of the vintage without being too obvious and one-dimensional. Good length.

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Attractive and open nose, with soft black fruits and floral perfume. Slightly elevated acidity but good use of oak and attractive ripe fruit. Finishes a touch shorter than it should for this level but quite charming.

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Dense colour, still purple rim, lots of blackcurrant fruit on the nose, lots of flesh and lots of depth and good firm tannins to back this up. Shows the fragrance of Margaux and very good vineyard depth, very good tannins for the long term, an impressive wine.
