You will like to know that...

It's Vieux Château Certan's purpose to produce wine in its purest and most natural form. From the moment the first grapes ferment until the bottling of the wine, no further products as yeast are added. This results in an excellent Vieux Château Certan 2008, which year after year receives great evaluations and critics from world wide renowned wine experts.

The 2008 vintage has been perfect for the grapes' development and ripening. A cold winter was followed by a warm spring and hot and dry summer. The rather low yields delievered small berries, that were well nourished by healthy vine canopies with maximum photosynthesis potential. 2008 brought a wine that is ripe, tannic, balanced with amazing fruit and wonderful acidity.

On a beach bar.
A wine with a high layer and a nice cherry colour. Concentrated aroma of red fruit jam. This Vieux Château Certan seemed fairly fresh.

It accompanied our desserts. My best friend from Bordeaux recommended it to me.
A Bordeaux with brown hues. Cherry and liquorice, sweet. Unctuous with aromas of chocolate coulant.

I bought it here at Uvinum.
Reddish towards brown colour. Its raspberry aromas give this Pomerol Vieux Château Certan its delicate character. Raspberry.
