Wine Advocate
From proprietress Odette Barrau-Badar, this vineyard, which is fabulously located just adjacent to Vieux Château Certan, Petrus and La Fleur Petrus, has produced a 2012 with a dark plum/purple color. There is often considerable Cabernet Franc in this blend, and I think that comes through in this wine with its notes of forest floor, earth and spice. It is fragrant, medium to full-bodied, rich and savory.

Wine Spectator
The rounded and perfumy plum and boysenberry fruit is laced with a mesquite note, while a light licorice snap hint checks in on the finish. A light sandalwood edge pinches the finish, but the flesh should absorb that in time. An elegant style of Pomerol.

Originally from Scotland, the DE MAY family moved to France in the Middle Age and were given, for their bravery, the “fief de Certan” by the King of France.
Located on the south-east part of the Pomerol plateau, it produces wines with the power of the clayey part and the elegancy of the gravelly part. Run by the Barreau family, the vineyard is world famous.
Now vinified under the advice of the renowned wine making consultant, Michel Rolland, the wine expresses the depth of this part of Pomerol along with the exotism of modern wine making techniques.
