Reviews for 1998 Vieux Chateau Certan Bordeaux Blend

WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2001
A powerful wonderfully toned red. Like a great javelin-thrower. Lovely mineral berry and violet aromas with hints of new oak. Full-bodied with big yet silky tannins and a long long finish. Best after 2010. 3000 cases... A powerful wonderfully toned red. Like a great javelin-thrower. Lovely mineral berry and violet aromas with hints of new oak.

The color is a dense purple. The wine reveals high tannin huge body and classy black fruits intermixed with minerals spice box cedar and tobacco.
