Characteristics Vieux Château Certan

Trusted Shops Reviews

Vieux Château Certan is a wood-aged red wine made by Vieux Château Certan with the Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties in the prestigious AOC Pomerol, in Bordeaux (France).
 
Owned by the Thienpont family, Vieux Château Certan is one of the oldest wine estates in Pomerol, dating back to the year 1700. This estate’s vines have been cultivated, generation after generation, with meticulous dedication, which has earned them some excellent reviews from world-renowned wine experts.
 
Vieux Château Certan is a Grand Vin that is produced from very old vines, aged over 55 years old, grown on an incredible plateau of clay and gravel soils. These vines are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture with low yields and protecting the natural balance of the terroir. When the grapes reach optimum ripeness, they are harvested manually. 
 
In the winery, Vieux Château Certan is vinified in a pure and natural way. Firstly, the grapes are meticulously selected and once they have been crushed, fermentation begins at a controlled temperature. The wine is then aged for 18 months in 225-litre French oak barrels before being bottled. 
 
A coupage of the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties, Vieux Château Certan is a classic from one of the most prestigious wine regions in the world. Wonderful fruit, fine structure and a vibrant finish.
