Tasting Notes Vieux Ch. Certan 1990

94

This was a very strong vintage for Vieux Chateau Certan. The 1990 reveals a deep garnet color to the rim along with a sweet bouquet of charcoal, licorice, roasted herbs, forest floor, and a meaty, truffle-like scent. A fleshy, full-bodied wine with exceptionally low acidity, plenty of melted tannin, and a long, layered finish, this beauty is close to full maturity, but it is in no danger of falling apart. It should keep for another 15+ years. Release price: ($590.00/case)

Tasted at the Bipin Desai's VCC vertical in Los Angeles. This has a slightly deeper colour than the '89 VCC. The nose is more powerful, although not as complex with blackberry, leathery, a faint hint of peppermint and pine. The palate is full-bodied with good structure, quite chewy and backward relative to other Pomerol 1990s. Bullish, perhaps gregarious VCC but still balanced with good acidity, never overpowering (well, VCC never is.) It has a grainy texture towards the weighty, glycerin-tinged finish with a hint of dried blood on the aftertaste. It is certainly a great 1990, although the 1989 is a classier affair. Drink now-2020. Tasted November 2008.
