About Vieux Chateau Certan
For the past 88 years, Vieux Chateau Certan has been owned by the Thienpont family. Alexander Thienpont, grandson of George, who acquired the estate in 1924, manages today. His hard work in the last 20 years has caused the estate to shine, lifting it from a period of shakiness in the '70s and '80s.
89 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2010
($80-$100) Bright ruby-red. Smoke, minerals, spices, tobacco leaf and a whiff of green olive on the nose; almost exotic but not in a classical Pomerol way. The exotic quality carries through in the mouth, which is firm and rather uncompromising today. A structured style of VCC but showing limited flesh today.
