Vieux Ch. Certan 2007
Tasting Notes Vieux Ch. Certan 2007
Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. The VCC 2007 is really beginning to show its class with bottle age. It has a lovely nose: blackberry, roasted chestnut, hot gravel and smoke that is very subtle and refined. The palate is beautifully balanced with crisp acidity, very structured with the Cabernet Franc defining the spice-tinged finish. Great authority here, this is a serious wine that will repay cellar age. Tasted January 2011.
Spicy notes of pepper, herbs, licorice, and black currants jump from the glass of this round, medium-bodied, easy to drink, cleanly made, soft wine. Enjoy it over the next decade.
