Variety: Merlot and Cabernet Franc
Vieux Chateau Certan upholds its name as being one of the oldest chateau in Bordeaux because of its beginnings in the mid 18th century. Fast forward to the early 20th century, a Belgian wine merchant, Georges Thienpont, founded the modern estate. While Vieux Chateau Certan is the first wine, the estate now makes a second wine, which is that of Gravette de Certan Pomerol. With the modernization of the winery comes new vineyard practices: green harvesting and reducing yields of the vines, ultimately leading to the best wine Vieux Chateau Certan has ever seen.
This bottle is 87% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc coming from the appellation of Pomerol in the right bank of Bordeaux. It is a bottle that can certainly age in the cellar, but would deliver well if opened now.
