Château Vieux Château Certain 2017 Pomerol 6 x 75cl 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Deepest crimson with black core. Not much aroma at first because the sample is cool. Rich, firm, dark and more savoury than usual, darker-fruited. Great freshness. Has impressive depth without weight. Very fine shape, great refinement even now. Feels like it is coiled tightly for the future. Dark beauty with just a very slight char on the finish and a long graphite aftertaste. Cool nights kept the freshness. (JH)
