2013 Chateau l'Eglise Clinet Pomerol (Futures)
2013 Vieux Chateau Certan Pomerol (Futures)
Reviewed by: Roger Voss, The Wine Enthusiast, 94 to 96pts
"The Vieux Château Certan 2013 is a blend of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc picked from 30 September until 9th October at 22hl/ha. It has a lovely, pure bouquet with small red cherries, rose petals and mineral that has exquisite delineation, though it does not possess the profundity of a top tier VCC. The palate is precise on the entry, a little pinched perhaps but with aeration it unfurls nicely. There is great tension here: a streamlined VCC that has the precision of a Swiss watch and a sense of tension that Hitchcock would have been proud of."
