2011 Vieux Château Certan, Pomerol

The vintage conditions at Vieux Château Certan were somewhat reminiscent of 1988, with a dry but not too hot summer that favoured Cabernet Franc. There is only one word to describe the result here: stunning. Very ripe plum characters, with a leather and tobacco edge, are beguiling. The texture is simply magnificent, with plenty of richness yet retaining a fresh edge, extremely fine tannins and a fantastic length. A Pomerol classic in the making.
