This was a very strong vintage for Vieux Chateau Certan. The 1990 reveals a deep garnet color to the rim along with a sweet bouquet of charcoal, licorice, roasted herbs, forest floor, and a meaty, truffle-like scent. A fleshy, full-bodied wine with e...

The 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon-Oakville Estate is more refined and less boldly-scented. Deeply-colored, ripe, and opulent, with stylish, harmonious flavors, well-integrated tannin, and a soft finish, it should drink well for 7-10 years. An excellent val... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

The 1990 Certan de May is a more conventional wine, with loads of jammy, sweet, cedary, and herbaceous cassis scents intermixed with a roasted herb, toasty wood character. Rich and full-bodied, as well as low in acidity and soft, the wine is already ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1990 Certan de May 750ml

Thick, chewy and full-bodied, with juniper, cedar and dried currant flavors. A muscular and focused Rhône, with an intriguing flavor profile, but too tough to warm up to at this young age.

Winemaker's Notes:

Named for founder Madame Clicquot, this prestige cuvee continues her practice of producing, in the finest years, a special wine for the exclusive enjoyment of her family and friends. Produced in extremely limited quantities from the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards Madame Clicquot purchased in the early 1800s. A supremely elegant vintage Champagne.
