Chateau Certan de May 2017 Pomerol


"This wine is developing well, bringing together tannins and concentrated black fruits. The dominant Merlot gives a solidly jammy character to the bold tannins. It is maturing into a serious wine that will be ready from 2024." Wine Enthusiast 95 Points

"Suave, with a silky frame supporting alluring damson plum, black cherry and raspberry sauce flavors, backed by red licorice and raspberry ganache notes. The polished finish displays energy and length. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. " Wine Spectator 93 Points

"The 2017 Certan de May is a blend of 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple in color, the wine charges out of the gate with bold expressions of preserved plums, blueberry compote and redcurrant jelly plus nuances of pencil shavings, forest floor and truffles. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers elegantly played black fruits and earthy accents with a lovely frame of fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with a quiet intensity." Robert Parker 93 Points
