Vieux Château Certan combines savoir-faire with exceptional soils in Pomerol. Perfect for Merlot, the soils of Pomerol—clay on top of well-drained subsoil—help to create wines capable of displaying an unprecedented concentration of color and flavor. La Gravette, the second wine of Vieux Château Certan, is named after a parcel of vines located between Certan and Le Pin. 30% of the crop is designated for La Gravette - mostly the younger vines and the Cabernets. offer more vieilles vignes to the blend.

Tasting Notes

This is a stunning vintage for the second wine of Vieux Château Certan. This is certainly equal to many well-known Pomerols and the wine displays beautiful rich, dark fruit character with a hint of graphite and truffle. On the palate the wine is quite sweet and round with notable freshness and grip. Made from a blend of 87% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc, this wine will drink well for the next ten years.
