Listing Details

One 750ml bottle of the Very Rare and Outstanding 1970 Vintage of Chateau Vieux-Chateau-Certan. Chateau Vieux-Chateau-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-Chateau-Certan to Ch. Petrus, because of its Sturdier, more Medoc- Like Encepagement. This 1970 Vintage is rated a High 94 points by The Wine Spectator Magazine, and here is their review , " 94 out of 100 ....... Rich, Medium Garnet - Ruby; Fruity, Rich Cassis, Tar and Cedar nose; Rich, Firm, Powerful and Very Long in the Mouth ; a Big Pomerol, with Tremendous Character and Length. "- The Wine Spectator. Additional Information : In the heart of the Pomerol, only a few rows of vines away from the famous church tower, is situated Vieux Chateau 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 Chateau Certan inspires Fascination on the part of great international Connoisseurs and Artists. Vieux Chateau Certan was the most prized Chateau in Pomerol between 1770 and 1875 when it was owned by the Demay family. In 1875 the chateau lost its Top spot to Chateau Petrus, which incidentally it joins as a neighbour. The Two Chateaux 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 Chateau Certan is Definitely Pomerol at its Finest. This bottle is in Mint Condition and is in Commercial Storage. Thank you for looking.
