Medium-bodied, refreshing, elegant and beautifully seamless, it offers layers of perfumed red and black fruits with a satiny texture and very impressive length. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

It just floats on the palate. One of best ever of the second wine of Vieux Chateau Certan. Drinkable now, but even better in 2023.

Darker and denser than the 2015, the 2016 La Gravette de Certan reveals a similar profile yet has more obvious structure as well as full-bodied notes of smoked tobacco, black fruits, earth, and spice box. Deep, powerful...   Darker and denser than the 2015, the 2016 La Gravette de Certan reveals a similar profile yet has more obvious structure as well as full-bodied notes of smoked tobacco, black fruits, earth, and spice box. Deep, powerful, and shockingly good for a second wine, it’s well worth your time and money. Drink it over the coming 20+ years.

The second wine of Vieux Château Certan defines young vines as those that are less than 25 years old, which gives you some idea of how different things are from your usual Bordeaux property. This has an amazing depth of...   The second wine of Vieux Château Certan defines young vines as those that are less than 25 years old, which gives you some idea of how different things are from your usual Bordeaux property. This has an amazing depth of fruit on the nose, with powerful cassis and bilberry softened by raspberry leaf and tobacco notes. It's a beautifully well balanced wine, extremely well constructed, precise and great quality, but pretty austere right now. Around 40% of overall production. 50% new oak.

Wine Enthusiast, May 2019
Ripe berry flavors embellish the second wine of Vieux Château Certan. Fruity and with silky tannins, the wine is made from young vines, giving a bright lively character that will be attractive from 2022.
