PRODUCT REVIEWS

Vieux Château Certain, or VCC as it is often referred to, is one of the oldest properties in Pomerol and its neighbours include Le Pin and Pétrus. VCC has an infamous pink capsule which was originally designed to help one of the estate’s former owners, Georges Thienpont, to identify the wines in his clients’ cellars. This is a wine that would stand out in your cellar, that is if you are able to resist the temptation to open it upon purchase.

"This wine is one of the finest efforts from Bordeaux's right bank in the 1986 vintage. The wine remains deep ruby-colored, with a complex nose suggesting cedar wood, fruitcake, Asian spices, roasted herbs, and black currants. In the mouth, there is moderate tannin as well as impressively concentrated flavors that roll across all the palate's sweet spots. Medium to full-bodied and rich, this 1986 admirably marries power with finesse".
Robert M. Parker, The Wine Advocate.
