|La Croix de Boyd Cantennac
In the heart of the vineyards of Château Boyd-Cantenac, on the noble terroir of Margaux, proudly stands a stone cross, emblem of the estate and guardian of the ancestral memory of these vines,who gave birth year after year to fabulous vintages. In 1754, the Boyd family left their Irish homeland to settle in Cantenac. Château Boyd-Cantenac was born. It's only by 1932 that the Guillemet family, which still owns today, acquired the vineyard. If Château Boyd-Cantenac, Third Grand Cru Listed in 1855, won over by its subtlety, elegance and flexibility, La Croix de Boyd-Cantenac flourishes in the same line. Lighter, more fruity, La Croix de Boyd-Cantenac comes from parcels of younger vines, but just as rich and
promising than their elders.
