Listing Details

One 750ml bottle of the Very Rare and Outstanding 1964 Vintage of Chateau Vieux-Château-Certan. Chateau Vieux-Château-Certan is the Outstanding Pomerol property that is Rated very close to Chateau Petrus, and always produces Quality, Classy Pomerol Wines. Many Wine Connoisseurs actually prefer Chateau Vieux-Château-Certan to Ch. Petrus, because of its Sturdier, more Medoc- Like Encepagement. This Rare 1964 Vintage is rated a High 91 points by The Wine Advocate Magazine, and here is their review , " 91 out of 100 ....... The 1964 is a Lovely Wine that is Round, Generous, Velvety, and Deeply Fruity. It has a Very Sweet, Ripe Bouquet of Fruit, Oak, and Truffles. With Soft, Amply endowed Flavors, Medium to Full body, and a Long, Long Silky Finish. It remains a Sumptuously Rich, Intensely Flavored Wine (from a magnum). Anticipated Maturity: Now - 2030. "- The Wine Advocate Magazine. Additional Information : In the heart of the Pomerol, only a few rows of vines away from the famous church tower, is situated Vieux Château Certan, the oldest cru of the Pomerol Appellation. Founded in the XVIth Century and known under its present name since 1745, the Chateau was acquired in 1924 by Georges Thienpont. Since this time it has continued to affirm itself as one of the Rarest and most Prestigious crus in the World. A symbol of Perfection; the Exquisite Finesse of its Wines, the Elegance of the Chartreuse Chateau surrounded by age-old trees, the order and quality of the vineyard, Vieux Château Certan inspires Fascination on the part of great international Connoisseurs and Artists. Vieux Château Certan was the most prized Château in Pomerol between 1770 and 1875 when it was owned by the Demay family. In 1875 the chateau lost its Top spot to Chateau Pétrus, which incidentally it joins as a neighbor. The Two Châteaux have the highest proportion of `buttonhole' clay on the high terrace of Pomerol. Which Contributes to the Excellence and Uniqueness of Both of these Rare Wines. The Wine is composed of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, set amongst 13.5 hectares of Vineyards. Vieux Château Certan is Definitely Pomerol at its Finest. This bottle is in Mint Condition with a Top-Shoulder Fill , and is in Commercial Storage. Thank you for looking.
