It is over a century since the Thienpont family began to look after this estate. It is 1 km from Pomerol, at the heart of Libourne, in the east of Bordeaux region. Today Alexandre Thienpont, 3rd generation of the family, holds the reigns of the old Château Certan. He was recently joined by his son, Guillaume, an oenologist and engineer. The 14 Ha, sole-tenanted vineyard, flourishes on the Certan plateau. It is a gravel terrace over an iron-rich subsoil. Most of the vines are over 50 years old. They are cultivated sustainably, with respect for the surrounding ecosystem.

Tasting notes

This wine opens with a nose that is deep, subtle and rich. Aromas of red and black fruit mix with touches of smoke and subtle notes of mild tobacco, all lifted with slightly bloody, animal nuances. It is ample, full-bodied and very elegant on the palate. Its intense tannic structure and generous volume confer good length and depth on this vintage. It is a great wine, intense and balanced.
