2011 Certan de May, Pomerol

SKU #1187747 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Barrel Sample* Firm and concentrated, this wine has great structure and density along with acidity and berry flavor. There is an attractive final spicy element. Inner quote mark (4/2012)

88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Aromatic herbs, red fruits and a touch of game on the nose, nicely lifted by sweet spice and violet notes. Bright and fresh in the mouth, with the cassis and herb flavors nicely supported by lively acidity and smooth tannins. Finishes with a coffee note. (ID) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

90 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The aromas in this 2011 are impressive, with flowers, plums and currants. Full body with velvety tannins and pretty, ripe, juicy fruit. A tad hollow in the center palate but it doesn’t matter - still outstanding. Better in 2017. Inner quote mark (2/2014)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows a slight edge, with charcoal, game and tobacco notes out front. The core of steeped fig and macerated black currant fruit is studded with ganache and waits in reserve. Reveals a smoldering edge on the finish, offering a flicker of game. Best from 2016 through 2023. Inner quote mark (3/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Black with soft purple rim. Unusual nose – lots of sweet red and dark fruit with rosemary and herbs. Ripe, very ripe damsons, almost raisiny. Firm, dry and dark, fine-grained and fluid but very introvert at the moment even though the fruit flavour is verging towards overripe. Inner quote mark (2/2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark An impressive effort from this well-situated estate sandwiched between Vieux Chateau Certan, Petrus and La Fleur Petrus, Certan de May’s dense ruby/purple-colored 2011 exhibits a big, spicy, earthy, plum and black-fruited nose, a medium to full-bodied, masculine style, and some noticeable tannins still to be shed. Cellar it for 2-3 years and drink it over the following 12-15. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2014)
