2012 Vieux Château Certan, Pomerol

2012 Vieux Château Certan, Pomerol

The wines from Pomerol have really excelled this vintage and Vieux Château Certan is clearly one of the best. For 2012 there is just 1% of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, 87% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc. Harvest was from the 1st to the 11th October and the latest on record, which gives the richness to the Merlot and opulence and density of fruit, and to the Cabernet Franc more aromatics. A very classy wine, satin textured and refined, with chocolate, plum and damson. A little savoury touch on the end and a huge, apparently never-ending finish.
