Reviews for 2010 Certan de May Bordeaux Blend

WS 98
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
hows stunning depth and drive with a deep well of blackberry and plum sauce and a lush structure. Superlong with spice and anise echoing on. A tremendous young wine in the making. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

Coffee, sweet tobacco, and Seville orange. Full-bodied and intense on the palate with polished tannins and deep layered texture. Give it four or five years of bottle age to soften. So gorgeous already.

Tuffles flowers blackberry and plum aromas meld with supple textures and round tannins that end in a soft chocolate black cherry finish.

Wild, old-school aromas of spicecake, loam, game and caramel, with a floral element emerging with air. Then sweeter in the mouth, with dark raspberry and beefsteak tomato merlot notes complicated by blueberry and minerals from the cabernet franc component. Finishes fine-grained, suave and dry, with very good spine. This one will need patience. 92+

Chocolaty, cedary and Christmas fruitcake notes along with some oak, damp earth and forest floor are present in this full-bodied, masculine style of Pomerol, which has a dense ruby/purple color and is a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The wine has a nice chewiness to it and is powerful and muscular, but not quite as silky or complex as some of the other top wines of this appellation. Forget it for 5-7 years and drink it over the following 25. 91+ - Robert Parker

This shows exotic fruit flavors up front along with viscous and textural elements. Not overdone in ripeness the palate gains elegance and subtlety on the back with finely textured firm tannins and a fruit finish that fades gently towards an ethereal presence. Will peak around 2021-25.
