(06-2016) Delicious and complex wine on the nose and on the palate. Nice feeling of race. Tannins, touch and very fine aromas.

(12-2016) It has been several years since I last tasted the 1985 Vieux Chateau Certan. Back then I remarked that I would not cellar it too long, although this bottle suggests that there is some mileage left yet. Served blind, I remarked that it was a 1985 due to the fragrant perfume on the nose, still almost Burgundy-like, though the presence of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc lent it subtle earthiness. The palate is mellow, fully mature but very harmonious. Whilst it does not have the depth or the flamboyance of the top Pomerols from this vintage, there is a sensuality to this 31-year-old wine and there is beguiling purity on the finish. It is just a joy to drink. Tasted December 2016.

(10-1994) A pretty, ripe style with cherry, berry and tobacco aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and fruity with firm tannins and a fresh finish.
