La Gravette de Certan 2015

$215.00 per bottle

Stock: Available

"Since Alexandre Thienpont began managing Vieux Château Certan, he renovated the winemaking facilities in 1988 and again modernised the traditional Pomerol estate in 2003. It was his decision to create a second wine, La Gravette de Certan. He began green harvesting, picking riper fruit and reducing yields as a regular part of their vineyard management techniques. All his efforts proved to be correct as the wines of Vieux Château Certan have never been better! The reputation of Vieux Château Certan today places it among the very best wines in the Pomerol appellation."

"This may be Vieux Château Certan's second wine but their Merlot / Cabernet Franc blend has real plushness. Alexandre Thienpont continues to turn out brilliant wines from this property situated on the high Plateau of Pomerol."
