Medoc crus classes 2009
Château Boyd-Cantenac, Margaux 3CC
Decanter average score: 17.75pts/20 (92/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: SB 18 AG 17 SS 18
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.
Price £35–£50 Balthazar, Fine & Rare
