2001 Vieux-Château-Certan, Pomerol

SKU #1009579 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This wine possess great beauty, it is almost Burgundian with its soft tannins and sweet fruit. Pure class and finesse in this, it is round and thick, long and very yummy. No need to wait on this, pull the cork. This vintage had more Merlot than the 2000 and you can tell. A subtle wine. Inner quote mark (5/2012)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very subtle aromas of blackberries, chocolate and plums follow through to a full-bodied palate, with very silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. An excellent wine with great intensity for the vintage. Very long indeed. Winemaker and part-owner Alexandre Thienpont is a master. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2004)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A brilliant effort...this 70% Merlot and 30% Caberent Franc is a deep purple-colored, fleshy, layered effort offering a sweet nose of creosote, incense, Christmas spices, plenty of red and black fruits, and hints of licorice as well as new oak. Rich, medium to full-bodied, with trememdous purity in addition to nobility, give it two more years of cellaring and drink it over the next following 15-18 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby-red. Pure but reticent nose hints at plum, raspberry and chocolate. Juicy and sweet but rather closed in the middle palate. Very serious merlot here: this has terrific penetration and structure for a 2001 from the Right Bank. Finishes long and gripping. A very good showing, but this wine really needs seven or eight years of additional cellaring. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Magnum of gloriousness. Wonderfully fresh and lively still. Lifted nose with real drive. Masses of ripe Merlot character. Such elegance! Char, tar and polish. The wine was served in Zalto glasses and there seemed to be such a contrast between the delicacy of these wafer-thin glasses and the massive opulence and richness of this great wine. 19/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2016)
