La Gravette de Certan 2018
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.
The color is very dark ruby with an expressive nose of cassis and chocolate. On the palate it is very fruit forward and very rich with sufficient ripe sweet tannins to excite all the senses. Long finish. The wine has a fresh, vibrant nose with aromas of autumn fruit and a hint of smoke. The palate is soft and fruity with great balance and a silky texture. This is a wine that can be enjoyed young, to best appreciate its lovely fruit character. A very pretty Pomerol
