What are the specificities of Château Boyd-Cantenac?
For some time, starting in the late 1800s, the wines of the Château Boyd Cantenac ceased to exist because the harvest was placed in other wines that the new owner already controlled. The Château Boyd-Cantenac came back into existence around 1921, under the direction of Marcel Laurent. After changing owners many times, the wine estate is now managed by Lucien Guillemet.
The winery offers wine tasting of a wine made from different grape varieties:
- Cabernet Sauvignon 60%
- Merlot 25%
- Cabernet Franc 8%
- Petit Verdot 8%
A priori, the vintage should be a wine of all virtues: its judicious planting on sandy-gravelly soil should give Cabernet Sauvignon all its capacity for expression. Moreover, the production of the last twenty years has been limited to 35 hectolitres per hectare in order to obtain a very precise wine.
In order to raise the quality of its Grand Vin, the estate also produces a Second Wine, Jacques Boyd, which takes its name from the original owner of the Château.
