All Vintages of this wine
Vieux Château Certan is the oldest known estate in Pomerol, and dates back at least as far as the 16th century. Purchased in 1924 by Georges Thienpont, a wine merchant from Etikhove (Belgium), the property has been owned and managed by a family-owned company since 1957. The vines are in a single block located in the middle of the Pomerol plateau, world famous for its outstanding wines. The proportion of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon vines is very high for the appellation. The significant proportion of these two varieties goes back many years and did not change even though neighbouring estates turned almost exclusively to Merlot. Like the finest wines of the Médoc, Vieux Château Certan is best after 10 or 15 years in bottle. At this point, it is at its peak of elegance and refinement. Vieux Château Certan is sold only through Bordeaux brokers and shippers, who in turn distribute the wine worldwide

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 81% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Vieux Château Certan gives up gorgeous black raspberries, crushed black currants and warm black berries on the nose with chocolate-covered cherries, violets and star anise suggestions plus black truffles and wood smoke. The palate is medium to full-bodied with wonderful concentration in the mid-palate and firm, very finely pixelated tannins, with seamless freshness and fantastic length.
