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.

Bright ruby-red. Cassis, raspberry, cedar, lead pencil and spicy oak on the nose. Rich, sweet and deep, with firm acids giving grip and verve to the plum, raspberry, lead pencil and bitter chocolate flavors. Wonderfully concentrated, lively and very long. The yield here, according to Thienpont, was just 34 hectoliters per hectare.
