Tasting Notes and Scores

97-98 JS

This is really powerful with big tannins and strong acidity. Full and intense. A wine for long-term aging yet one that offers accessibility at the same time. This estate is on a roll now. - March 2017

James Suckling

93-96 AG

The 2016 Certan de May is powerful and dense in the glass. Dark tonalities of fruit and a sense of gravitas are two of the signatures. This is an especially vertical, baritone expression of Pomerol. Dark spice, lavender, leather and licorice infuse the dark, potent finish. The 2016 delivers serious flavor intensity while retaining its super classic midweight sense of structure. - vinous.com, April 2017

Antonio Galloni

91-93 BI

One of the greats from the Mouiex stable, as the name suggests, this estate lies very close to famous Vieux Chateau Certan. Tight, dark, cassis and blackberry liqueur. Firm, grippy structure, acidity not perfectly integrated yet. Bit dry and heavy. - April 2017

Bordeaux Index

90-93 WS

Lovely plum cake and melted licorice flavors lead the way, backed by plum and cherry compote notes. Fruit-forward, with just a light woodsy hint for spine, while the finish lets perfumy tea and floral accents hang. - James Molesworth (WineSpectator.com, April 2017)

Wine Spectator

86-88 NM

The 2016 Certan de May is a blend of 65% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a perfumed bouquet with bright red fruit laced with wilted rose petals, the oak nicely integrated, although it just lacks a little complexity compared to other recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied and felt rather "skinny" on the entry with some hardness to the tannin. Linear and austere, this is a perplexing showing of a Pomerol that I have a lot of time for, continuing a patchy run of form. - Wine Advocate #230, April 2017

Neal Martin

Dark crimson. Particularly rich, curranty nose. Really quite intense. And then on the palate it's all freshness and light. Should be a long-distance runner. Lots of sinew. Drink 2026-2044. - jancisrobinson.com, April 2017
