Tasting notes

Robert Parker
Tasted: 01/06/2007
Drink: 2012-2025


This stunning blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of black cherries, licorice, roasted herbs, smoke, and cassis. Elegant, medium to full-bodied, pure flavors reveal moderately high tannin, but superb concentration and richness. Vieux Chateau Certan should be one of the longer-lived and most complex wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.

Drink: 2010-2020


Made from an unusual blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, this is a powerful yet classic effort for the vintage. Its dark plum/ruby color is accompanied by sweet scents of melted licorice, Provencal herbs, black currants, cherries, incense, and subtle new oak. Medium-bodied with good underlying acidity, a noble character, and an elegant, long, moderately tannic, complex finish, it should be at its finest between 2010-2020.
