2014 La Gravette De Certan 75CL
Wine Rating: 91 points
Drink by: 2018 - 2026
Lovely, with a stream of raspberry confiture flowing through, while light mint, star anise, and black tea notes weave in and out.
The long and refined finish has a light mineral accent, while the fruit sails on.
This is quietly one of the best second wines in Bordeaux.
"La Gravette de Certan is the second wine of Vieux Château Certan, one of the most prestigious estates in Pomerol. The 14 hectares vineyard is located on the plateau of Pomerol and is average 35 years old.
The soil is a mixture of gravel, clay and sand on an ancient plateau which contains a high content of “crasse de fer” (iron oxide). Vinification and maturation process of La Gravette de Certan are the same as for producing the “Grand Vin” of Vieux Château Certan."
