We've always found VCC (as the shorthand goes) to be a rather atypical Pomerol, thanks to its unusually high percentage of Cabernet Franc and the presence of some Cabernet Sauvignon. Although the Cabernet component often makes for a reticent and very firm wine in the early going, some recent vintages have been more Merlot-dominant and thus more open and sweet in their youth, even if they possess the structure for long aging. 7500 cases of the eponymous Grand Vin are produced each year along with a second wine, Gravette de Certan.
