96 WA/95+ Vinous

One of the top wines of the vintage is the exquisite 2006 Vieux Chateau Certan. A blend of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc, it is a stunningly rich effort boasting an inky/blue/purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of forest floor, coffee, toast, and extravagant levels of black currants and blackberries. Hints of charcoal and flowers add to the wines exquisite character. Whats remarkable in this full-bodied wine is that nearly 100% new oak is used, yet the oak is largely drowned out by the wines concentration and complex personality. This full-bodied Vieux Chateau Certan should be reasonably approachable in 3-4 years but last for at least three decades. This great success merits kudos to proprietor Alexandre Thienpont. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

What a pleasure it is to taste and drink the 2006 Vieux Chteau Certan. Wonderfully sexy and gracious, the 2006 VCC has something that is so rare in this vintage: finesse. Broad, ample and creamy, the 2006 possesses remarkable depth and pliancy throughout. Sweet dark cherry, blueberry, mint, rose petal, licorice and exotic spice are fused together in a racy, undeniably seductive Pomerol that is impossible to resist. Although it is incredibly alluring today, the 2006 also has enough pedigree to develop beautifully for another two decades or more. This is a superb effort from Alexandre Thienpont and one of the most striking wines of the year. 95+/Drinking window: 2016-2036. -Antonio Galloni
