Chateau Certan de May de Certan Pomerol 2010

Chateau Certan de May de Certan Pomerol 750ml 2010     
Sku: 22892

Shows stunning depth and drive, with a deep well of blackberry and plum sauce and a lush structure. Superlong, with spice and anise echoing on. A tremendous young wine in the making. Tasted non-blind.

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Certan-de-May 2010 has a rounded, voluptuous bouquet with ravishing black cherry and cassis fruit, hints of crushed violet developing with time. The palate is rounded and generous, soft in the mouth with velvety tannins, although the acidity on the finish is very low and feels dominated by the oak at the moment. You might guess this to be something like Le Bon Pasteur blind - you would be wrong of course. Tasted January 2014.
Chocolaty, cedary and Christmas fruitcake notes along with some oak, damp earth and forest floor are present in this full-bodied, masculine style of Pomerol, which has a dense ruby/purple color and is a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The wine has a nice chewiness to it and is powerful and muscular, but not quite as silky or complex as some of the other top wines of this appellation. Forget it for 5-7 years and drink it over the following 25.
