1990 Château Certan de May

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/19/2015 - gsquireh Likes this wine: 90 points

Refined and classic and revealing the elegance of its age, this wine is still strutting its medium body and beauty as a monument wine, a quarter of a century wine that provides pleasure. The blackberry, plum and cassis still linger with a hint of expresso, a scent of cedar and event less of tobacco. Chocolate and hazelnuts are scant, but still linger. This wine's primary characteristic now is balance. The tannins are soft and supple, the oak is a memory. Drink now, do not decant, and delight in the ease of this surprising wine.

Nice, old school Pomerol with soft, but slightly rustic textures, sweet, earthy red fruits and round finish. Not as concentrated as other bottles I've tasted, this still showed a lot of charm.

Nice, but clearly slowing fading. Better on the complex, earthy nose than on the medium bodied palate. This requires consumption over the next few years.

'A point' with a compote of plummy fruits, with a pleasant, tensile but subtle grip, with some pleasant earthy, undergrowth notes, but above all minerally and iron notes. Unlike many 1998 right banks, this needs drinking over the next few years, but it is magnificent now.

Working my way through a case of this wine purchased all those years ago. This was the best bottle I recall having in a while. Light red in color, this medium bodied, soft wine offers a nose of floral, cherry and truffle notes. Smooth and easy on the palate, the spicy, black raspberry and earthy notes carry through. Though this was fresher than previous bottles tasted, there is no reason to age this further.

Slightly browned medium garnet. Fairly neutral nose of alcohol, red berries, and distant cocoa powder. Sour strawberry, some blackberry and bramble. Very light texture. Really opens up with time - I would recommend a minimum of two hours, and would drink it now or in the near future.

Ub beau Pomerol assez fin et équilibré, rien n'accroche.
Nez un peu discret sur la terre et les cerises.
Un bouche, c'est assez fin et gouleyant, des petits fruits rouges et du moka. Beaux tannins fins et longueur moyenne.
Très beau Bordeaux.

This one, from the same lot, was much better than the previous one. Must have been bottle variation. Plenty of fruit and complex secondary flavors. Based on this one, I'd say at least some bottles have more life left in them.

Beautiful bouquet with creamy dark forest fruits, graphite, earth and smoke. Same on the palate. A pleasant touch of sweetness nicely balanced by good acidity and tannin. Good concentration. Overall a beautiful and luxurious wine. Probably best between 2017 and 2023+?

Lovely, fresh bouqet, lots of red and dark berrise, some oak, fresh herbs, some coffee and licorice. Nose really develops in the glass!
Taste is full bodied, with elegant dark fruit, licorice, plum, herbs, green pepper. The wine is quite dry, tannin supporting the fruit, acid making it fresh and tasty. damn good stuff!!

A stalwart, fingers crossed, every bottle has been simply quite lovely. More open more quickly than the previous bottle, black and red fruits, plums, leather and minerals on the nose and palate. Plenty of grip here.

A tiny gem of a vineyard; aging of the 83 is much in the way one would anticipate after reading a tasting note of 1985; tough texture and brawny ... good color moderate sediment brick nose very little fruit, masculine full round bordering on two dimensional, flat. Browns and sienna are the colors that come to mind. The tannins have softened but there is no fruit to shine through. Decent and very good with meats and roasted vegetables. drink now and soon

2007 Château Certan de May

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend more

3/28/2015 - Argrath wrote: 89 points

Fully ready, quite lovely nose. Dark fruit, plum, nuts, ink and mineral. Subtle hints of iron. Good complexity and good depth. Some disturbing hints of green peppers and dried herbs.
Medium-fullish body. Good fruit attack with plum, integrated oak, and tobacco. Slightly harsh tannins, though. A bit lean on the finish. And a bit short. The vintage shows in the palate.
Compared to both 2007 Evangile and Conseillante (tasted 1 and 2 years ago), this Pomerol made a weaker impression. Drink while fruit lasts.

Coy at the start and took a couple of hours to come out of its shell, opening up with an attractive nose of red stone fruits, plum, a whisper of vanilla, leather and tobacco. Finished with a bit more grip and punch.

odd wine. started off like a cali fruit bomb basically. couldve fooled me for a mid range napa cab from the 80s. after about 30 minutes it started to come more bordeaux like with a cab franc bell pepper nose dominating. but as it gained this it started to become more disjointed.

still a nice drink but ive been running better at these old bottles.

Initially, the nose showed VA, but after a couple of hours of air, raspberry and blackberry appeared as the VA receded. Very light-bodied and pretty with low tannin. A bit hollow on the mid palate. Pleasant aged Bordeaux, but perhaps not a representative bottle. Drink now.

This started out fresh and exceptionally floral with loads of violet, red and blue fruit. Pretty and vibrant. After about 2 hours, this took on a very minty note which was enjoyable, but very pronounced. Medium+ finish.

Somewhat reserved nose of dark fruit, touch of coffee, maybe a floral note and burnt chocolate. The palate matched, but was a bit shallow and angular.

Ripe black fruit / black raspberry with some VA notes early on. The front end shows very well integrated gravel/ tobacco/ lead notes that run into the middle, supporting the sweet fruit. Finishes flat with some remnants of dusty tannin. Possibly an off bottle, otherwise I’d call this tired.

Good – Drink Now
