2019 Certan de May, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1480623 94-95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a very attractive wine with blackberry, walnut and hazelnut aromas and flavors. Full body, firm tannins and a fruity finish. Yet, it’s reserved and pretty. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark 0Excellent quality, here the pull through the palate is slow, with bigger tannins than in some of the Pomerols this year, with the Cabernet Sauvignon making an impact in terms of dark yet savoury berry character but also weight and structure. Excellent wine, seriously good quality, give it at least six years before this softens out. 30% new oak. (JA) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

90-92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark I don't think the 2019 Château Certan De May will match the 2018, but it could certainly be an outstanding wine. Lots of earthy dark fruits, plums, leafy herbs, and chocolate notes define the bouquet, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a plump, rounded mouthfeel and light tannins on the finish. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Certan de May rocks up with open-knit scents of warm black cherries, baked plums and blackberry pie with hints of charcoal, crushed rocks, iron ore and menthol plus a fragrant touch of sandalwood. Medium-bodied, the palate gives a pleasantly chewy texture and lovely freshness, supporting the subtle black fruit layers, finishing on a mineral note. (LPB) 90-92+ Inner quote mark (6/2020)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Cedar, sweet pipe tobacco, menthol and anise are some of the notes that lift from the 2019 Certan de May. Medium in body, pliant and expressive, the 2019 has much to recommend it. Today, the 2019 is perhaps just a touch introspective, but there is plenty going on here. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2020)
