Description

Jacques Boyd is the 2nd wine of Château Boyd-Cantenac, 3rd Classified Growth in 1855. The name «Jacques Boyd» is a tribute to an Irish squire who purchased the Château in 1754 before to sell it in 1806 to John Lewis Brown, who will be united by marriage with the Boyd family. Then, the current owners, the Guillemet Family, will purchase this property in1932 to produce wines with remarkable elegance and finesse. Jacques Boyd is lighter and fruitier than its first wine but with no less elegance or finesse and with a recognizable silky style. This wine can be enjoyed young, but also has the potential to age well for up to ten years.
