You will like to know that...

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 2015, which year after year receives great evaluations and critics from world wide renowned wine experts.

The 2015 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. 2015 brought a wine that is ripe, tannic, balanced with amazing fruit and wonderful acidity.

Vieux Château Certan 2015

Vieux Château Certan é um dos mais conhecidos crescimentos conhecidos de Pomerol. Foi fundada no início do século XIV, quando a família Demay chegou da Escócia para se estabelecer neste local. Apareceu no mapa de Belleyme em 1785 sob o nome de "Sertan". Em Pomerol, o nome do local de Certan foi retirado da propriedade. Em 1858, Charles de Bousquet tornou-se dono do Vieux Château Certan. Os edifícios dos castelos que vemos hoje foram construídos por ele. Em 1924, Georges Thienpont, um comerciante de vinho flamengo, comprou a propriedade. Isso marcou o início da presença da família na região de Bordéus.

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.

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.

Brillant ruby red colour, high layer. This Vieux Château Certan Pomerol had good scents of red fruits. A very powerful red.

Reddish towards brown colour. Its raspberry aromas give this Pomerol Vieux Château Certan its delicate character. Raspberry.
