Alexandre Thienpont has made another spectacular Vieux Château Certan in 2016. This has a deep, ruby hue with a nose of black fruit and cherries. The palate is extremely voluptuous with a succulent texture, silky tannins and a long finish. The high percentage of Merlot adds notes of chocolate, liquorice and tar.

Alexandre Thienpont’s magnificent Pomerol estate is capable of producing exquisite wines; and they regularly do. The elegant structure of the Chateau, covered in ancient wisteria is a fitting building for such an estate. It is understated, but beautiful, just like the wine. The 35 hectares under vine are planted with 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Franc. The parcels of old vine Cabernet Franc add complexity and structure to the velvety textured Merlots and helps this chateau to excel in challenging vintages.
