2008 Château Certan de May, Pomerol

This is one of the most consistently impressive wines from the J.P. Moueix stable over the last few vintages. Very fragrant and fresh, with dark plum, cherry and almost black forest-fruits. This is a juicy, elegant Pomerol with a wealth of layered, lush fruit tied to a tight mineral core. There is a tautness about this style which draws towards a cherry-stone mineral quality at the finish. This property does not quite make it into the limelight as it should, but one can see why the Moueix team serve it after Lafleur-Petrus and Hosanna in their annual trade tasting. It is a more structural, assertive Pomerol. Very elegant, offering good potential for cellarage. Fine-tuned, classic in style, with terrific purity and a long, persistent finish. Robert Parker: 91-93
