Vieux Chateau Certan 2017

75cl / 14.5%

This is undoubtedly a worthy follow-on to the otherworldly 2015 and 2016. It has the depth of fruit and texture to offer pleasure even today, yet a solid 7-8 years of cellaring are warranted, and it should be long-lived. Bravo! ~ Jeb Dunnuck

About the Vieux Chateau Certan 2017

Tasting Notes

Colour: Deep garnet-purple color
Nose: A vivid, kirsch and wild strawberry bouquet with touches of orange zest and marmalade, a touch of mushroom in the background. The bouquet absolutely prances out of the glass with stunning scents of candied violets, chocolate-covered cherries, roses and eucalyptus over a core of black plum preserves, mulberries, black raspberries and blueberry pie plus wafts of licorice, iron ore and truffles.
Palate: Medium to full-bodied, the palate has fantastic balance and expression, with very fine-grained, silt-like tannins and well-knit freshness, finishing with epic length and perfume.
Grape Varieties: 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc & 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
Awards: 98pts – James Suckling; 98pts – Wine Spectator; 98pts – Wine Advocate-Parker

History of Vieux Chateau Certan

Vieux Château Certan is a wine estate in the Pomerol appellation on Bordeaux’s Right Bank, known for its rich, deeply colored red wine (usually) based on Merlot. It is consistently rated by judges and the press as one of the very best wines in the world, and achieves correspondingly high prices at auction. Since taking control of Vieux Chateau Certan in the mid-1980s, vigneron Alexandre Thienpont has garnered a reputation of producing some of the most classic, elegant and complex wines in Pomerol, his wines are stunning – they’re usually concentrated and layered, yet easy to drink and are approachable when young.
