    Vieux Château Certan, 2019

    Free Delivery from €175 We aim to deliver within 2 working days.

    A stellar Pomerol of formidable depth and character

    Lush, layered and complex. Opens up with a floral-scented nose of rose, violet and alder. The palate is rich and unrelenting with waves of black cherries, dark raspberries, plum liquer, black tea, dark chocolate and truffles. Full-bodied on a bed of velvet tannins, the finish is extremely long and earthy. A feast for the senses

    STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

    Vieux Château Certan is an estate that “consistently overperforms” according to one Jancis Robinson. To do this vintage after vintage in Pomerol, an appellation like no other, means that this Grand Vin can rightly take its place amongst the very best in the world. 2019 was another great vintage here. I could tell you that this blend, produced from old vines, is 78% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. But that doesn’t do justice to a wine of effortless depth, dimension and seduction.
