Editorial Reviews for Vieux Château Certan
Butterscotch and black cherry on the nose with just a touch of herbs and a piercing violet top note. On the palate this is very fresh with great acids and unobtrusive tannins that are very soft but add volume in the mouth. The fruit has a muddy, earthy tone that adds nice depth and a touch of complexity to the pure fruit. 88pts

Ripe raspberry and an earthy minerality. Red fruit and cigar box on the palate. Balanced tannic core. Very enjoyable!
This is absolutely worth checking out ASAP. Had 3 bottles from Malene and Kim (thanks a lot:). One of the most popular wines since 1999 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon. Light cherry red, with lots of fruit, sweet fat tannins, and the oak/vanilla well balanced into this hot wine.
Dry with a strong, yet fast dissipating fruit.
A lighter, dryer Sangiovese but certainly smooth and well balanced with its low tannins. The 2005 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano presents hints of minerals, smoke and tobacco along with the traditional black cherry notes.
External Reviews for Vieux Château Certan
Dense concentration and oak-driven aromas of spice, blackberry, chocolate fudge and espresso this thick Montepulciano (70%) and Sangiovese blend (packaged in an equally imposing and heavy glass bottle). The wine is plush, dense, sweet and would pair with roast pork and broad beans.
Red wine - 2005 - Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reserve - France - Region: Rh
The 2009 Rosso Piceno Superiore Roggio del Filare opens with warm, toasty aromas that recall sweet cinnamon rolls baking in the oven. This spiced, jammy red reveals lovely finesse and silky tannins, but a touch less oak might allow the appealing vibrancy of the fruit to shine through with even more clarity. This is another gorgeous red from Velenosi. Anticipated maturity: 2010–2015. These are the finest wines I have tasted from Velenosi, and emerging producer in the Marche that is very close to making a huge jump in the overall quality of their wines.

Vieux Ch. Certan, Pomerol displays deep black-red, cherry-red at the rim<br/>followed by a bright berry fruit nose; succulence on the palate, lovely weight,<br/>depth and texture. Good density. Tannins are plentiful but ripe with a long<br/>finish. A real sense of minerality to the wine, clearly from a noble<br/>terroir. <br/>(Alun Griffiths MW, BBR Wine Director - Mar 09)
