Characteristics and Tasting Notes for Vieux Chateau Certan 2023

Vieux Chateau Certan 2023 opens with a deep ruby hue and showcases a delicate balance between a velvety texture and rare aromatic purity. As the tasting progresses, the wine reveals an exquisite balance, resulting in a rich and creamy grand wine from Pomerol.

The Estate

Vieux Chateau Certan is one of the oldest and most prestigious estates in the Pomerol terroir. The estate has been in the Thienpont family for over a century, with Alexandre Thienpont as the current owner.

The Vineyard

Spanning 14 contiguous hectares, the Vieux Certan vineyard benefits from fertile soils and meticulous care, producing Pomerol wines renowned for their aromatic finesse and elegance.

The Vintage

The year 2023 was characterized by a temperate climate, with early flowering and veraison during a relatively warm July. The mild weather of early August transitioned to high temperatures at the end of the month, ensuring optimal ripening of the berries until harvest.

Vinification and Ageing

The wine underwent approximately three weeks of maceration with delicate extraction before malolactic fermentation. It was aged in barrels, with two-thirds being new.
