K&L Notes

99 points Neal Martin: "The 2015 Vieux Chateau Certan was bottled in mid-May as usual. This was one of the wines of the vintage out of barrel, and now it has a compelling bouquet with blackberry, smoke and iris. There is wonderful delineation here, a cerebral bouquet that is quite mercurial in the glass, traces of black truffle emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and just a killer line of acidity, a Vieux Chateau Certan surfeit with energy and joie de vivre. It fans out in glorious, almost swaggering fashion with truffle and white pepper, a touch of truffle on the persistent finish. This is clearly destined to be one among the canon of legendary wines from the estate although it does deserve requisite cellaring. This is one of the wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2055." (02/2018)

    **One of the wines of the vintage** Perfumed and very fine with rich black fruits, graphite, liquid minerals, and cocoa powder. Exotic mouthfeel and weight (14.6% alcohol) yet completely in balance. Cashmere from the Cabernet Franc with power from the Merlot. On the palate, this is absolutely seamless, long, and pure. Extraordinary.

    I loved this wine. In my opinion, one of the best three of the vintage.

    This one wowed us! Amazingly pure and elegant, with a velvety texture and seamless lush sweet core of fruit that goes on and on in the mouth; it is not a monster but the definition of elegance, balance and finesse -A blend of 80% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon.
