"Tasted blind at the Southward 2012 tasting, the 2012 Boyd-Cantenac has a simple, fleshy and yet satisfyingly exuberant bouquet with scents of blueberry and cassis fruit. What it lacks in complexity it compensates with in sheer joie-de-vivre. The palate is well balanced with crisp tannin, well-judged acidity and overall it feels harmonious and long. Yes, there is some toasty new oak to be absorbed on the finish, but here there is sufficient fruit to make that possible and retain balance. One to watch. Tasted January 2016." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate (10/28/2016, Issue 227), Rating: 90, Drink: 2019-2032
Effective October 18, 2019, the US Trade Representative's Office imposed a new 25% value-added tax (i.e., import tariffs) on a wide range of European products (including French wine, Italian cheese and single malt Scotch whisky) to penalize EU subsidies for Airbus. EU has made counter-claims agains the US subsidies for Boeing. A ruling by WTO on EU's counter-claims is expected in the spring of 2020.
Our current prices are shown before taxes and tariffs. Any Futures (En Primeur) and Pre-Arrival order may be subject to the collection of additional tariffs. Tariffs will be based on the date of importation and the US tariffs in place at the time. Current rules exempt wines with alcohol content above 14.5% from the newly imposed 25% tariffs. We will offer free storage in our professional wine cellar in Bordeaux in the event of any delay in importation caused by the uncertainties created by tariffs.
