Lot 292

Vieux Chateau Certan
Pomerol, 2001
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
The estate’s history dates all the way back to the mid 1700 and Vieux Chateau Certan is one of the oldest Pomerol properties. Located on the top of the Pomerol plateau it is directly across the street from Certan de May and not far from Petrus, Lafleur and Le Pin. Having produced some of the most legendary wines from the mid 20th century, today VCC is widely considered in the top tier of all Bordeaux and quintessential Pomerol.

A brilliant effort from Alexandre Thienpont, this blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc is a deep purple-colored, fleshy, layered effort offering a sweet nose of creosote, incense, Christmas spices, plenty of red and black fruits, and hints of licorice as well as new oak. Rich, medium to full-bodied, with tremendous purity in addition to nobility, give it two more years of cellaring and drink it over the next following 15-18 years. - Robert Parker 93/100 (2014)
