Vieux Château Certan 2014 was purchased in its original wooden case and comes from a classically styled right bank Bordeaux vintage; with so many wines showing a perfect balance of fruit, tannins, acidity and alcohol.
Under Alexandre Thienpont, the third generation proprietor of this 14 hectare estate, Vieux Château Certan, whose neighbours include Pétrus, has established itself as one of the most famous names in Pomerol.
Alexandre is a traditionalist at heart, and still carries out fermentation in large wooden vats. He employs restricted use of new oak, although he is open to modern techniques such as crop-thinning when he feels they are beneficial to the quality of his wines. Vieux Chateau Certan is crafted in an elegant, feminine style that seduces rather than dominates the palate.
