Tasting Notes

The 2015 La Gravette de Certan is a stellar second wine that shows just how fabulous the vintage is in Pomerol. Inky plum, blueberry, mint, lavender and spice notes give the Gravette its dark, sumptuous personality. La Gravette, Vieux Ch√Ęteau Certan's second wine, emerges mostly from the younger vines on the property. Drink it over the next 10-20 years.

So pretty on the nose with iodine, dark berries, flowers and rose petals. Full body and integrated tannins within a beautiful texture. Intense finish. Focused. Second wine of VCC. Better in 2022.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2018

Medium-bodied with a touch of flowers and sweet, red fruits, soft textures and a confident, spicy, fresh approach for early drinking. The wine was made from 87% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc. 88 - 90 Pts

88/90
