Marks and reviews
Vieux Château Certan is one of the oldest and most prestigious estates in the Pomerol terroir, acquired over a century ago by the grandfather of Alexandre Thienpont, the estate's current owner.
Covering 14 hectares in a single block, the Vieux Certan vineyard benefits from fertile soils and rigorous attention to detail, producing Pomerol wines renowned for their aromatic finesse and elegance.
The end of winter, marked by mild, dry conditions, advanced early budburst at the end of March. The mild weather at the beginning of April stretched into a hot, dry summer, which the vines were able to withstand. A restorative spell of rain in mid-August boosted ripening. Harvested at optimum ripeness in early September, the grapes, despite their small size, revealed a great vintage of wonderful concentration and balance.
Cabernet franc (20%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (5%)
The wine has a beautiful garnet colour.
The nose entices with its fruity and floral fragrances.
The silky feel and the roundness of the Merlots mingle harmoniously with the minerality and persistence of the Cabernet Francs and with the aromatic richness of the Cabernet Sauvignons.
