Gravette De Certan 2018 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
Wow. I was very fortunate to be visiting Vieux Chateau Certan this morning and had the privilege to taste first Gravette De Certan 2018 (on the day of its release), second Vieux Chateau Certan 2019 barrel sample, and finally Vieux Chateau Certan 2018 sample bottled just two week prior. I will leave you to peruse the tasting notes from the various wine journalists for VCC, but the Gravette De Certan 2018 should not be considered a second wine because stand alone it is tremendous at a fifth of the price of the Grand Vin, VCC 2018.
The color is very dark ruby with an expressive nose of cassis and chocolate. On the palate it is very fruit forward and very rich with sufficient ripe sweet tannins to excite all the senses. Long finish. This is a serious wine to be cellared for quite some time. - Andy Lench, President & CEO of Bordeaux Wine Locators, July 2nd, 2020
