Loaded with notions of dark, chocolatey fruits, leafy herbs, and violets, it has more richness and depth on the palate than most estates’ top wine. Medium to full-bodied and textured, with sweet tannins, it's well worth seeking out and will evolve for two decades.

This is really delicious now with chocolate, tobacco, spice, and cedar. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. Pure. Easy, yet complex. Second wine of Vieux Château Certan. Drink now. Enjoy!

Medium-bodied, the palate has a generous amount of expressive blue and black fruit flavors, framed by ripe, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and fragrant.- LPB

Still with plenty of tannins, it has structure although the fruit is already beginning to shine through. It offers spice and good acidity, and is likely to be ready from 2022. ROGER VOSS
