This is so delicious already with dried strawberry, chocolate and walnut character. Full body, fine tannins and a silky and delicately fruit finish. Fantastic for the vintage. Sweet fruit. Drink or hold. But why wait? Second wine of Vieux Chateau Certan. Rating: 91 James Suckling, (Feb 2015)

The second wine, the deep ruby/purple-hued, medium-bodied 2012 La Gravette de Certan, is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. It exhibits sweet mulberry and cedary notes intertwined with hints of tobacco leaf, licorice and earth as well as a thickness, no doubt from the Merlot. It should offer enjoyable drinking for a decade or more. Rating: 88-90 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, 2013)
