Tasting Note:

Certan de May is frequently the most exotic and flamboyant of the wines we taste at the offices of J P Moueix. The 2009 displays an almost Richebourg-like complexity and aromatic profile, with high-toned decadent berry fruits as well as brooding aromas of coal and earth. This is wonderfully exuberant; a hedonistic delight for the senses. There is also considerable structure here too. Although one is wowed by the mass of ripe plums and exotic, delicious fruits, there are beautifully crafted tannins and a freshness and acidity that makes this very complete.
