Peter Maude Fine Wines
2019, Château Certan de May, POMEROL
Bordeaux Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon.
Excellent quality, here the pull through the palate is slow, with bigger tannins than in some of the Pomerols this year, with the Cabernet Sauvignon making an impact in terms of dark yet savoury berry character but also weight and structure. Excellent wine, seriously good quality, give it at least six years before this softens out. 30% new oak. 94/100 Jane Anson, Decanter.
Drinking Window: 2024 - 2036.
