Tasted 7 Times With Consistent Notes A dazzling wine, which I have tasted a number of times over the years, the 1947 Vieux-Chateau-Certan is typical of so many 1947 Pomerols. Its thick, viscous, port-like style and texture are the hallmarks of this vintage. More advanced than the 1948, it reveals a smoky, meaty, truffle, and blackcurrant-scented nose, as well as massive, chewy flavors loaded with glycerin, extract, and alcohol. It exhibits more amber at the edge than the 1948, but, wow, what a mouthful of wine! Like many 1947 Pomerols, its unctuosity and thickness make me wonder if a spoon would stand up in the glass without any support? Drink it over the next 10-12 years.
