La Gravette de Certan Pomerol 2014
Vieux Chateau Certan is one of the oldest and finest estates in Pomerol. Owned by the Thienpont family since 1924, VCC neighbors Certan de May, Petrus, and Lafleur, and is planted to 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The second wine, La Gravette de Certan, displays the hallmark elegance of the first wine with an eye toward earlier drinking. 100% sustainable vineyard management farming techniques.
JS93: "The plum and blueberry character and hints of cocoa are really impressive. Medium to full body and firm and silky tannins. Integrated and so fine. A beautiful thing. Drink now or hold. Second wine of Vieux Château Certan." - James Suckling
