1970 Chateau Boyd Cantenac 3eme Grand Cru Classe Margaux Bordeaux

The classical dry red wine of Château Boyd-Cantenac comes from the appellation Margaux in Bordeaux. Its 17 hectares of vineyards are located west of the village of Cantenac in the Margaux appellation.
1754 the property was purchased by Jacques Boyd. After the 1855 Grand Cru Classifications ranked Château Boyd-Cantenac as a third growth winery. Few years later the estate was divided into Boyd-Cantenac and Cantenac-Brown.

With the 1970 Chateau Boyd Cantenac 3eme Grand Cru Classe Margaux, comes a personal present meant for a person who is very special to you.

The largest of the six communal AOCs is also the southernmost and the closest to Bordeaux. Its geographical area covers five municipalities that have selected the lands with the best wine-making skills. The terroir is made up of some of the most beautiful gravel hills in Bordeaux. This vineyard has the highest number of classified growths (no less than 21: 1 first growth, 5 second growth, 10 third growth, 3 fourth growth, 2 fifth growth), which ranks Margaux at the top of all the municipal appellations of the Médoc (read our article “Grands Crus Classés from Bordeaux, Official Classification of 1855“). It is also the only one to bear the name of a first Grand Cru Classé, the legendary Château Margaux whose quality is explained by its exceptional terroir and which provides one of the most elegant wines in the region. While remaining a minority compared to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot takes on greater importance in the Margaux blends. In this way, wines are distinguished from other Médoc appellations by their delicacy and delicacy. They are often said to be the most feminine of Médoc wines. Both tannic and sweet, they have an excellent ability to guard.

Area: 1410 ha / Soils: Gravel consisting of gravel and pebbles / Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Carmenère / Potential: 10 to 20 years (much more for some wines and vintages)

Information on the vintage 1970 red Bordeaux:
A highly important vintage in many ways: it’s fine quality and it’s timing provided a jump start to the wine boom which was already hotting up. There was every reason to believe that it wa going to be a highly satisfactory vintage, and as important in its way as the ‘millennium’ vintage three decades later.
