Vieux Château Certan, Pomerol 2019

RRP £225

Spherical wine, racy and refined, projecting power and grace. The most Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend (7%) since 1988, lending unique backbone to the wine, which includes 78% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. The palate is marked by juicy damson and cool blueberry fruit, floral aromatics, and fine tannic structure with excellent cellaring potential. The vintage warmth recalls 2009, says owner Alexandre Thienpont, but with better tannic structure.
