It's Vieux Château Certan's purpose to produce wine in its purest and most natural form. From the moment the first grapes ferment until the bottling of the wine, no further products as yeast are added. This results in an excellent Vieux Château Certan 2014, which year after year receives great evaluations and critics from world wide renowned wine experts.

The 2014 vintage has been perfect for the grapes' development and ripening. A cold winter was followed by a warm spring and hot and dry summer. The rather low yields delievered small berries, that were well nourished by healthy vine canopies with maximum photosynthesis potential. 2014 brought a wine that is ripe, tannic, balanced with amazing fruit and wonderful acidity.

Vieux Château Certan 2014

Vieux Château Certan is one of the oldest known growths in Pomerol. It was founded at the beginning of the 16th century when the Demay family arrived from Scotland to settle there. It appeared on Belleyme's 1785 map under the name of "Sertan". In Pomerol, the Certan place-name was taken from the estate. In 1858, Charles de Bousquet became the owner of Vieux Château Certan. The château buildings that we see today were built by him. In 1924, Georges Thienpont, a Flemish wine merchant, purchased the property. This marked the beginning of the family's presence in the Bordeaux region.

Vieux Château Certan Pomerol 2016
I shared a few glasses of Vieux Château Certan Pomerol with that person I always am happy to drink wine with.
Brillant ruby red colour, high layer. This Vieux Château Certan Pomerol had good scents of red fruits. A very powerful red.
I enjoyed it with a beef dish.

On a beach bar.
A wine with a high layer and a nice cherry colour. Concentrated aroma of red fruit jam. This Vieux Château Certan seemed fairly fresh.

Vieux Chateau Certan 2015
It accompanied our desserts. My best friend from Bordeaux recommended it to me.
A Bordeaux with brown hues. Cherry and liquorice, sweet. Unctuous with aromas of chocolate coulant.

I bought it at a wine tasting stand.
Cherry colour. In my opinion, the most noticeable smell is raspberry. It has a slightly sweet taste.
