 Pomerol Protected Designation of Origin and Great Wine

The wines of Vieux Chateau Certan

The Thienpont family bought Vieux Chateau Certan in 1934. Domaine Vieux Chateau Certan produces some of the greatest wines of the Pomerol designation. It's located 30 km East of Bordeaux, on the right bank of the Dordogne. The vines are grown according to the sustainable winegrowing principles and cover 14 hectares. They are about 50 years old, and they’re grown on different types of soil (very clayey, clay-gravel, or very gravelly). The three main red grape varieties that are used in different proportions to make red Bordeaux wines are: Merlot (70% of the vineyard), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%).

In the 1940s, Vieux Chateau Certan was considered to be one of the finest and most distinguished Pomerol wines, one that is full of elegance, similar to and sometimes even surpassing the famous  Chateau Petrus. Indeed, with the old vintages from 19451947, 1948, and 1950, Vieux Chateau Certan made quite an impression with these cuvees that were probably its finest wines. Famous American critic Robert Parker said that they were still exceptional wines to drink in the early 2000s! The high share of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon in its blends is what gives its peculiar style to Vieux Chateau Certan's, but it has also been a source of drawbacks during the En Primeur tastings as its wines did not display the fleshy structure of its prestigious neighbours, resulting in lower tasting notes from the critics. Vieux Chateau Certan's Great Wine should be enjoyed after 10 years in the cellar so that the purity and distinction of the terroir are fully restored in the wine flavours. In its best years, like 2015201420102009200820062005200019981990198819861982, the Vieux Chateau Certan estate's wines are outstanding, and they display a very noble expression that can be compared to that of a great Medoc. They've got excellent ageing potential (10 to 30 years, and more). The second wine is called "La Gravette de Certan". It doesn't have to be kept that long in the cellar (5 to 8 years) and it comes from the estate's youngest vines. The strong reputation and great quality of the estate have had an impact on the wine enthusiasts' interest for these cuvees.
