Tasting Notes:

Fresh and pure, with tasty cherry paste, plum and cherry preserve flavors laced with a singed vanilla note. Light anise, tobacco and violet accents line the finish. Best from 2019 through 2027. 1,000 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

This is the second wine of Vieux Château Certan, accounting for one-third of production and composed mainly of fruit from the younger vines. A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 La Gravette de Certan is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with gorgeous, expressive plum preserves and blackberry pie notions on the nose with touches of powdered cinnamon, cloves, potpourri and dusty soil. Elegant, soft and pretty in the mouth, it has a spicy character and an earthy/savory finish.

Tasting Notes:

So pretty on the nose with iodine, dark berries, flowers and rose petals. Full body and integrated tannins within a beautiful texture. Intense finish. Focused. Second wine of VCC. Better in 2022.

Tasting Notes:

I loved the 2015 La Gravette de Certan, which is the second wine of this reference point estate in Pomerol. Straight-up sexy and open-knit, with thrilling notes of kirsch, tobacco, and sweet spice, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and a great texture. This is one pleasure-bent second wine to drink over the coming 15 years or so.

description Producer information Professional reviews

The Vieux Château Certan is one of the oldest known crus of Pomerol. Its foundation dates back to the early 16th century when the Demay family settled here from Scotland. Later, it is mentioned in 1785 on the map of Belleyme under the name "Sertan". In Pomerol, the place called Certan borrows its name from the estate. In 1858, Charles de Bousquet bought the Old Castle Certan. We owe him the present appearance of the buildings. In 1924, Georges Thienpont wine merchant in the Flemish Ardennes bought the property. This is the starting point of the family establishment in Bordeaux.
