2021 Vieux Chateau Certan, Pomerol, France

Aromatic, fresh and flavoursome.
From winter to the end of March, the first part of the 2021 growing season was marked by mild temperatures and frequent rainfall, which brought about a fast budding of the vines.

Once the threat of April frosts had passed, a full flowering and a managed healthy vine canopy from spring till the beginning of summer ensured that solid foundations for the vintage had been laid down.The summer continued in temperate and frequently wet weather
conditions up till the middle of August.Four glorious weeks of hot, dry and sunny weather then set in.

Thank to these favourable conditions, the Merlot was superbly balanced, supple and perfumed. It brings uplift and roundness to the blend.The Cabernet Franc displayed aromatic intensity and its hallmark character. It shows delicacy, length of flavour and breed and gives a shimmering aspect to the wine.


Finally, the Cabernet Sauvignon, brings a floral finishing touch and added structure.

The 2021 Vieux Château Certan offers multiple facets: it shows a balance between freshness and roundness, fruit character and length of flavour.

(Rating: 94-96). A blend of 77% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2021 Vieux Château Certan wafts from the glass with lovely aromas of violets, rose petals, sweet wild berries, exotic spices, orange rind and smoke. Medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping, it's an elegant, fleshy wine with a bright core of fruit, ultra-refined tannins and a precise, saline finish. Despite its almost Burgundian finesse, this Pomerol's remarkably penetrating, perfumed finish gives the lie to any notion that it's in any way lacking in intensity of flavor. As is almost invariably the case, Vieux Château Certan is one of the finest wines of the appellation this year. Reviewed by: William Kelley, Issue date: April 2022, Drinking window: N/A.
