2011 Vieux Chateau Certan Pomerol (Futures)
-Wine Spectator, 93 to 96 pts.
"Made in a big, bold style with 13.6% natural alcohol, it reveals a stunning perfume of graphite, mulberries, black currants, kirsch, licorice and forest floor. This full-bodied, dense Pomerol transcends the overall vintage character. Thienpont compared the style of the 2011 with their 2000, but with more density to its core because of the extremely low yields. Only 60% of the crop made it into this cuvee. It will need 5-8 years of cellaring, and should still be intact and drinking beautifully at age 30."-Robert Parker
1985 Chateau L'Evangile
"Multidimensional nose melds red berry liqueur, milk chocolate, underbrush, truffle and smoke...Lush, silky and sweet, with sneaky ripe acidity giving the flavors clarity and penetration."
