This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

MNSC Bordeaux Trip Day 4: Vieux Château Certan

Visit to Vieux Château Certan, where we were received by owner Alexandre Thienpont.

2008 Vieux Château Certan, from Sylvain barrel – beautiful with soft tannins and good acidity balance. Fruity nose with coffee and toasty oak notes.

2008 Vieux Château Certan, from Seguin Moreau barrel – this glass was much more open and forward, which justifies Alexandre’s choice of having 80% of barrels from Seguin Moreau.
