Certan de May 2010

Certan de May 2010

Region: Pomerol , Bordeaux

Blend: 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc



The 2010 Certan de May showcases a deep, garnet color with purple hues and rich intensity. On the nose, the wine reveals a captivating bouquet of black cherries, cassis, violets, and hints of cedar and tobacco, displaying the classic characteristics of Pomerol. The palate is equally impressive, offering a velvety texture with well-integrated tannins that add structure and depth. Flavors of ripe black fruits, licorice, and spice notes intermingle harmoniously, creating a symphony of flavors that linger on the palate. The finish is long and persistent, leaving a memorable impression. With its impeccable balance and refined complexity.

Robert Parker - 91 Points

"Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Certan de May opens with notions of sweaty leather and pencil lead over a core of prunes, blackberry pie, dried mint and mulberries with a touch of mincemeat pie. Medium to full-bodied, the palate packs a punch of dense, earth-laced black fruits combined with chewy tannins, finishing spicy."

Antonio Galloni - 92 Points

"The 2010 Certan de May has a slightly disjointed bouquet compared to the 2010 Clos l’Eglise, broodier and more introspective, but eventually reveals attractive truffle and morel aromas, hints of warm gravel or red bricks. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, taut and crisp with a slightly attenuation towards the finish. But there is wonderful tension and sense of energy. This is a cru that disappointed when I last tasted it in 2014. This is a completely different wine! Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal."
