About this Wine

This wine costs quite a lot less the second wine of Vieux Chateau Certan, and it’s definitely a lot more delicious. And don’t even mention the cost of the first wines. Standing here you are just surrounded by the biggest names – Vieux Chateau Certan, Trotanoy, La Fleur, Clinet, Petrus. It’s really quite surreal. It doesn’t pretend to be a Petrus, or L’Eglise Clinet, but for this I like it all the more. And in a way, without all the polish and new oak of some of the buffed up wines of this most sought after appellation in the world, it is a truer reflection of the terroir. The soil is the same as for the other most famous producers in Pomerol - flint and gravel, with fine decomposed clay, on clay, with iron deposits (rich in orange crystals typical in Pomerol).

Tasting notes

Delicious, fairly rich, yet supple with a deep gravel mineral structure, with finesse of fine Pomerol. Beautiful with goose, roast beef, turkey, and when you want to simply reflect over a glass of beautiful, fine wine. And a nice one to put into a blind tasting.
