"The 2013 Vieux Château Certan has plentiful fruit on the nose considering the vintage: raspberry coulis, crushed strawberry and a touch of blackcurrant pastilles. The palate is medium-bodied and while it might not rank with the greatest VCC's of recent years in terms of complexity, there is admirable depth and purity with a crisp, almost edgy finish that leaves you wanting another sip. This comes recommended for the vintage and I suspect it will give 12-15 years of drinking pleasure." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #227

"Very enticing, featuring crushed boysenberry and raspberry fruit, accented by fruitcake, black tea and bramble notes. Shows excellent length and energy for the vintage, with enough stuffing for the cellar. This has developed grip since the barrel tasting. Best from 2018 through 2028. 1,665 cases made."

"This is soft and silky with chocolate, orange peel and dust. Medium body, round and light tannins. Fresh finish. Drink now." JamesSuckling.com

"Tasted blind. Deep garnet. Mocha at first. Then juicy on the palate. Lively and just a little dry at the very end. But refreshing, elegant and harmonious in the context of this vintage." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
