    Product description

    Alexandre Thienpont follows an organic approach for his wines to enhance the natural expression of the grapes and reduces technical intervention as much as possible. The wines of Vieux Château Certan have their own character and require a few years cellaring. They are perceived as some of the best from Pomerol.

    Complex aromas of plums, black cherries, cassis and hints of minerality and spice. Medium bodied and well balanced with soft tannins.
