Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com – 16.5

Typically Cab Franc nose with the leafy note as well as plush cassis fruit. Really quite light on the palate, as if it has been undercooked somehow. A touch of bitterness on the finish. (RH) [07/11/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030

Vinous – 88

The 2016 Certan de May was disappointingly skinny when I tasted it from barrel. It has put on weight during its élevage, as one expects, but trust me, this is not up there with the greatest wines from Certan de May. The bouquet is pleasant but does not go that extra mile, coming across a little green around the edges and missing some vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite supple tannins and well-judged acidity. I appreciate the freshness here, but this does not deliver the complexity or terroir expression of the best vintages, or even some of its great successes in the 2000s. I know this Pomerol can do better. [Neal Martin, 24/01/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2021-2035

Robert Parker – 94+

A blend of 65% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, the medium garnet-purple colored 2016 Certan de May offers up notes of wild blueberries, black cherries and raspberry leaves with hints of black tea, roses and tar. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers a wonderful quiet intensity of blue, red and black fruits plus a fine-grained backbone and superb freshness, delivery and very long, mineral-tinged finish. [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 30/11/2018]

Anticipated maturity: 2019-2040
