Vieux Château Certan





Grape Variety:

Merlot Cabernet Franc

La Gravette de Certan, Pomerol, 2015

Tasting Note:

Tasted at the Justerini & Brooks 2015 tasting, we were surprised by its generosity and class. The father and son team of Alexandre and Guillaume Thienpont has really improved the quality of the second wine over recent vintages. The 2015 Gravette is produced from 87% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc from the younger vines on the estate. This is packed with ripe cassis and fragrant plums with a hint of graphite and truffle. It is pure cashmere in the mouth, and despite its relative youth, it is already a delight to drink. We suggest fans of VCC drink this while you wait for the grand vin to develop.
