You will like to know that…

It's Vieux Château Certan's purpose to produce wine in its purest and most natural form. From the moment the first grapes ferment until the bottling of the wine, no further products as yeast are added. This results in an excellent Vieux Château Certan 2005, which year after year receives great evaluations and critics from world wide renowned wine experts.

The 2005 vintage has been perfect for the grapes' development and ripening. A cold winter was followed by a warm spring and hot and dry summer. The rather low yields delievered small berries, that were well nourished by healthy vine canopies with maximum photosynthesis potential. 2005 brought a wine that is ripe, tannic, balanced with amazing fruit and wonderful acidity.

A discovery I made with one of my best friends.
Opaque cherry red. Notes of strawberry on the nose. Balanced in the mouth.
The best pairing would have been fish.
