Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2007
Fabulous aromas of crushed berries vanilla and chocolate with pure fruit. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a long caressing finish. All in texture. A gorgeous and seductive young wine. This is 25 percent Cabernet Franc... Fabulous aromas of crushed berries vanilla and chocolate with pure fruit. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a long caressing finish. All in texture. A gorgeous and seductive young wine. This is 25 percent Cabernet Franc (normally it's 15 percent). Best after 2009. 4585 cases made. -JS

Dense and fat but with a firm edge of acidity leavening the wine's layered texture. A lush and creamy wine with terrific spine. Classic VCC finishing with outstanding spicy persistence. It's hard to find this style of right-bank Bordeaux today. I've had a letch for this wine since the outset.

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. 93+
