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.
90-92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013
Good full ruby. Cool, medicinal aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, violet and mint. Then silky and deep on the palate, offering pure dark berry and floral flavors and an attractive combination of stuffing and energy. Finishes perfumed and very long, with suave, fine-grained tannins. Another very successful VCC in the making.
