Editorial Reviews for Château Certan de May Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol
This smells stemmy and composty, all feral with iron and green pepper and even a touch of celery. Fairly nicely balanced, rich and broad with sufficient acidity to perk things up a touch on the palate. There’s some nice fruit here as well, clear with both mineral and very gentle vegetal tones accenting the blueberryish fruit on the mid-palate that becomes more obvious on the finish. The finish is a touch short and tough, though the blueberry fruit and violet nuances do show some aromatic lift. Hopefully time will help this because today it is a bit ordinary at best. 84pts
Deeply flushed in appearance, the wine presents an overt nose of non-fruit elements: leather, buffalo jerky and North African spices. Cranberries, red cherries, plums and potting soil chime in on the palate. The mouthfeel is soft but balanced with an easy-going juiciness. The excellent balance helps the flavors hold on through a medium-finish. 13% abv
Winemaker's Notes: Alcohol: 12.5 % Acidity: 5 g/l RS: 2.8 g/l Content: 0,75 l This is an excellent example of typical Austrian Grüner Veltliner: a dry and fresh white wine with influences of green apples, grapefruit and lemon. All this underlined by the spice of white pepper and ripe acidity
89 points: Wonderfully fragrant, with spiced currant, sweet aromatic wood, and a bit of camphor. The palate is bold, with anise and licorice over roasted cherry.The palate flavors dance around with achoholic energy. It has a good balance with fine tannins that support, and later coat the mouth.
Great with meat and spice. Bold flavors.
Lightest in the glass from tasting, but dense in flavor. [From "Chateauneuf du Pape & Friends" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 15 September 2013.]
Lovely for drinking, plus held its own taste alongside a broccoli salad with a balsamic dressing.

External Reviews for Château Certan de May Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol
The plots of the Domaine Grand Veneur are located on slopes where the vines are 90 years old, which guarantees the constant quality of their wines. They are masters at producing fine Rhône wines, with finesse and the tradition of winemaking handed down through generations. This wine starts off with a deep purple color, and has sensuous floral and spice aromas. The depth continues with ripe dark fruit flavors accompanied by cinnamon and clove spices. Enjoy this wine with barbecue-glazed meatloaf and roasted new potatoes with rosemary and garlic. Food pairing: red meats Flavor type: traditional Body type: full Finish: rich
Delicious French Cab Franc, offering subtle but abundant ripe overtones of sweet black and raspberry fruit wrapped around a core of cranberry and saddle leather. Food pairing: poultry, seafood, pasta Flavor type: traditional Body type: light-medium Finish: elegant
Fresh, ripe and racy, showing a nice grippy edge to its black currant and fig notes, with mouthwatering tobacco and dark olive underneath. Stays driven on the finish. Drink now through 2011.
This is enticing, with Cavaillon melon, toasted hazelnut, citrus oil and crème fraîche notes on a full-bodied frame. Drink now.
Deep, dark, rich and powerful, the Domaine Grand Prieur Vacqueras is big and bold, with ripe blueberry and black cherry flavors backed up by the spicy gaminess I love so much in these wines. Unbelievably delicious and well-structured, I think the 2009 vintage shall prove to be as good, if not better, than the famed 2007s.
Very rounded and juicy, displaying delicious red licorice, blackberry and dark tobacco notes backed by hints of pastis and graphite. Still a touch primal, so cellar a bit to let it assimilate fully. Drink now through 2011.
The 100% Roussanne cuvée, the expensive but very white Burgundy-like 2009 Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape La Fontaine blanc comes from 70+-year-old Roussanne vines and is aged 6–8 months in 600-liter demi-muids. It exhibits intense aromas of flowers, honeysuckle, candle wax, rose water, orange marmalade and apricots. Full-bodied with great acidity, the wood is pushed way to the background.
*The most powerful, finest overall wine made at this estate since their 1982,* the muscular 2009 reveals a dense ruby/purple color in addition to meaty, smoky notes of black cherries, iron, truffles, loamy soil, and spice. Dense, full-bodied, and virile; patience will be a virtue as this wine needs 5-6 years of cellaring.Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (93-95 pts.)*We will notify you on arrival Summer 2012.*
