2009 Vieux Château Certan, Pomerol

2009 Vieux Château Certan, Pomerol

Ref: BORD0985
Red  |  Still  |  13.7% ABV

Slap bang in that golden triangle of clay soils that encompasses the vineyards of such luminary properties as Cheval Blanc, Evangile and Petrus, VCC exudes that confidence of a property producing a wine greater than its commune. For above all, this is VCC, a fact that occludes its Pomerol origins. Owner Alexandre Thienpont is a softly spoken man whose seeming shyness belies the authority within the wine itself. One of the greatest wines of Bordeaux, without doubt.

Tasting Notes

N.B. 84% Merlot, 8% Cab Franc, 8% Cab Sauv. 13.7%abv. Lovely density of aromas here. Floral, fresh black cherry and red plum fruit aromas. Certainly less black than Evangile. Hint of pot pourri. Lovely rich entry, but this has tannins right from the front and they're fabulous: integrated, nutty, rich and velvet textured. This is one long and delicious wine, rich, cool, and controlled. Parallel profile and a wonderful, fresh red and black fruit aftertaste. A triumph. Bowes Wine original note

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
