"Very ripe, but with superfresh acidity to keep the lush plum, raspberry and black currant notes fresh, while melted licorice and a long, violet-filled finish come in behind." (WS)

"An opaque blue/purple color is accompanied by impressively sweet floral notes intermixed with black currant and blackberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied with high but round tannins, the 2010 Boyd-Cantenac is exceptionally well-endowed, textured and pure. This under-the-radar estate (a classified growth in the famous 1855 rankings) never seems to catch the attention of consumers. It deserves better. Enjoy the 2010 for 25 or more years." (WA)

"Full, dark red. Deep, slightly oaky aromas of black fruits, wild herbs and delicate spices could use a bit more verve. Clean and bright, with a minty, somewhat austere quality to the black plum and raspberry flavors. Finishes pure and long, with big, chewy tannins that need time to resolve fully. But I was left with the impression that this wine was slightly overextracted." (IWC)

"A fruity and balanced red, with currants, blackberries and cherries that follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a clean finish.$$" (JS)
