Chateau Certan de May 2012 Pomerol

Description

"This is a very firm and concentrated wine with dark and smoky character. The palate is elegant and fine, but densely structured with dark tannins that give extra complexity." Wine Enthusiast 94 Points

"The 2012 Certan de May is spherical and intense in the glass, with no hard edges and plenty of up-front fruit. Black cherry, smoke and mocha are all pushed forward in a dark, sensual wine that will drink well early. At times, the 2012 can feel a bit heavy, but it otherwise is very nicely done. Dark cherry, spice, leather and mocha add the closing shades of nuance." Antonio Galloni 92 Points

"From proprietress Odette Barrau-Badar, this vineyard, which is fabulously located just adjacent to Vieux Château Certan, Petrus and La Fleur Petrus, has produced a 2012 with a dark plum/purple color. There is often considerable Cabernet Franc in this blend, and I think that comes through in this wine with its notes of forest floor, earth and spice. It is fragrant, medium to full-bodied, rich and savory. This is another meaty, concentrated, very successful 2012 Pomerol It should drink well for 20 or more years." Robert Parker 91 Points
