Juicy with black cherry and tobacco flavors. It's full-bodied and velvety with plenty of fine tannins.

Bordeaux Book(2003) | 92

Fully mature, this hussy of a wine offers up very complex notes of new saddle leather, smoked herbs, black currants and cherries, sweet licorice, melted asphalt, and a hint of truffle. Fleshy, succulent, and delicious but fully mature, this dark garnet-colored wine has medium body, wonderful sweetness, and a very vigorous, long, fleshy finish. A silky-textured, delicious wine, it needs to be drunk over the next 5-7 years.

About This Producer


Chateau Certan-de-May is situated on the plateau of Pomerol on the right bank of the Gironde Estuary. Its neighbors include Vieux-Chateaux Certan, Petrus, and Le Pin. The chateau's name comes from a Scottish family who settled in Pomerol during the 17th century. The estate produces about 2,000 cases a year from clay soil and gravel-covered vineyards. The wine's blend is made of 70% Merlot and the rest consists of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Since 1974, the property has been run by Mme. Bareau-Bader and her son. The style of the wine is very big and concentrated, which stems from its vinification process. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel, followed by up to a month's maceration before aging in new oak barrels. The best vintages of Chateau Certan-de-May can age for more than twenty years.
