Vieux Château Certan was founded in 1745 by Jean Demay de Certan, a wine merchant. It is one of the oldest wineries in the Pomerol region of Bordeaux and was rated as one of the best wineries in Pomerol in its early years. In 1924, Georges Thienpont, a Belgian wine merchant, took over the winery and it continues to be run by his family today. Georges Thienpont used a very special and eye-catching pink bottle seal for his wine, which is still used today. A great feature.

Vieux Château Certan is located in the highlands of Pomerol, close to Petrus, Lafleur and Le Pin. The vineyard covers an area of ​​14 hectares and consists of 23 plots, each of which is managed individually according to the soil type, the grape varieties planted and the age of the vines: the clay soil part is mainly planted with Merlot (70%), gravel The clay soil is planted with Cabernet Franc (25 %) and the gravel part is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (5 %). The average age of the vineyards is 50 years, and these old vines, combined with the favorable influence of the microclimate of the Pomerol Highlands, allow the different grape varieties to reach perfect ripeness. Vinification takes place in temperature-controlled oak vats, with fermentation temperature regulated at 28°C to ensure a gentle, controlled extraction. Vieux Château Certan is an elegant style of Pomerol red wine. The wine is rich and round, exuding aromas of ripe blackberries, plums, flowers, chocolate and spices. The texture is described as silky and velvety, making it very easy to drink, but it also has excellent complexity and aging potential.


One of the wines of the vintage, the 2019 Vieux Château Certan unfurls in the glass with a striking bouquet of cassis and cherries mingled with notions of violets, loamy soil, sweet spices and incense. Full-bodied, ample and layered, it's seamless and enveloping, with a fleshy core of beautifully vibrant fruit, lively acids and ripe, powdery tannins. Concluding with a long, resonant finish, this perfumed, sensual Vieux Château Certan is a remarkable achievement from Alexandre and Guillaume Thienpont. - Robert Parker
