2007 Vieux-Château-Certan, Pomerol (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)
91 points Wine Spectator: "Shows blackberry, fresh mushroom and Indian spices on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, glorious finish for the vintage. Well-crafted as usual. Best after 2013." (03/10) 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, deep ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry and licorice. Sweet and supple but lively, with good pepper and violet lift to the black fruit and chocolatey oak flavors. A very fresh wine with lovely persistence but a slightly peppery aspect on the back. The palate-coating tannins reach the teeth. This should evolve slowly for a 2007 Pomerol." (May/June '08) 89 points Robert Parker: "Spicy notes of pepper, herbs, licorice, and black currants jump from the glass of this round, medium-bodied, easy to drink, cleanly made, soft wine. Enjoy it over the next decade." (04/10) Please note - 2007 Bordeaux futures are not in stock, but will arrive between Jan 2010 and Dec 2010. We will contact you for shipping instructions.
