Reviews for 2005 Certan de May Bordeaux Blend

WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, June 2006
Pure crushed grapes. Incredible nose. Full-bodied with super concentration and ultraripe tannins. It lasts for minutes. Classy but muscular. Certan de May is back with force. Score range: 95-100 (JS)

95+ This great terroir sandwiched between Vieux Château Certan, Petrus and La Fleur Petrus, on the high plateau of Pomerol, has been owned for many years by the Barrau-Badar family. Beautiful coffee, cedar wood... 95+ This great terroir sandwiched between Vieux Château Certan, Petrus and La Fleur Petrus, on the high plateau of Pomerol, has been owned for many years by the Barrau-Badar family. Beautiful coffee, cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit jump from the glass of this full-bodied, rich, multi-layered, and very impressive Certan de May. I don’t remember it showing this well in barrel and post-bottling, but it is strutting its stuff at age 10, and has a good 20 years of upside left to it. This is a beauty. I especially admire the layered, textural style of the wine. Drink it over the next 20 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
