Château Certan de May 2020

Château Certan de May 2020

"This is another historic property dating back to the 16th Century, gifted by the Kings of France to the Scottish de May family (and doubtless for their services against the beastly English…) It was planted to vines in the 18th Century by the de Mays and is now owned by the Barreau family (no connection). The chateau is of coursethe immediate neighbour of Vieux Château Certan and La Fleur-Pétrus. It is distinctive for having a relatively high Cabernet ratio (25% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) in 2020, with an opaque ruby colour and a sweet, vinous, almost treacle-succulent red fruit nose. The palate has fine concentration and density, a wellliftedfreshness and excellent length. Shades the 2019 as well – which is a fine achievement. Corney & Barrow Score 17.5Drinking dates: 2027–32+"
