Maturity:
Keep/Drink
ABV:
13%
87-90/100
Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
Ruby-red. Reserved nose hints at bitter cherry, Cuban tobacco and game. Rather powerfully structured but a bit dry-edged, showing more game and tobacco than primary fruit and lacking verve. Finishes a bit dry. As with the 2001, this sample may not be fresh.

Château Certan de May

Château Certan de May

Certan de May is perfectly situated in the heart of the plateau of Pomerol, rubbing shoulders with the commune’s most illustrious names: Petrus, Vieux Chateau Certan and Le Pin. Despite its charmed position, the wines do not really live up to the competition. That is not to say that they are not good, they are excellent, exotic, perfumed, slightly tarty expressions of Pomerol and they are quite reasonably priced (in the context of Pomerol), however, they have yet to emerge as one of the leading lights in this star studded appellation.
