2014 La Gravette de Certan, Pomerol

SKU #1277301

Second wine of Vieux Chateau Certan. From Alexander Thienpont, of whom Robert Parker has said, in reviewing a previous vintage, "Alexander Thienpont continues to turn out brilliant wines from this property situated on the high Plateau of Pomerol." Fresh raspberries on the nose and on the palate with some toasty oak undertones. We drank it as we could not spit it out. This is a must buy. We have never carried this label and very little is made in each vintage. Clyde beffa

This is the first time we have carried this beauty--the second wine of Vieux Chateau Certan, one of the best properties in all of Bordeaux. We tasted it on our first day in Bordeaux on our 2016 buying trip. We bought all that was available--only 180 bottles. Pure framboise on the nose and palate. Lush, sweet, and sexy. Buy it and enjoy now or ten years from now.
Drink from 2016 to 2020

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
