Chateau Certan de May de Certan Pomerol 2009

Chateau Certan de May de Certan Pomerol 750ML 2009          
Sku: 50454

 Vinous 95 points (Jul 2012)
Deep purple-ruby. Knockout nose of black cherry, minerals, coffee liqueur and violet offers uncommon depth and complexity. The flavors of blackberry, black plum and minerals are complicated by a note of iron and given wonderful clarity and cut by harmonious, vibrant acidity. Finishes very long and pure, with distinctive balsamic nuances. There’s lots of sweet fleshy fruit here but the wine comes across as amazingly refined and graceful thanks to its vibrant acidity, which really extends the flavors at the back. The best young Certan of the last 12 or 15 years.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Certan-de-May ‘09 has a very perfumed, floral bouquet with crushed violets, dusky black fruits, mulberry and raspberry leaf with a touch of the old antique bureau. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, good focus and precision and firm grip on the finish that is a little drier than others. Like Le Bon Pasteur, a lovely but stylistically different. Tasted January 2013.
 Wine Spectator 92 points (Mar 31 2012)
Bright and ripe, with mouthfilling linzer torte and blackberry preserves pushed by black tea and toasty spice. This has the racy grip of the vintage, which builds steadily through the finish. Turns darker and denser with air. Best from 2014 through 2028. 2,250 cases made. –JM
