Vieux Chateau Certan 2010 is a blend of 86% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. Hailed by owner Alexandre Thienpoint as one of the "best" Vieux Chateau Certain ever, Parker calls the 2010 vintage "crisp and refined" and praises its "voluptuous texture and tremendous purity." 2010 Vieux Chateau Certain is best enjoyed now and until 2051

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 Vieux Chateau Certan, a blend of 86% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol. Production was lower than in 2009 and the alcohol slightly higher, but the pH is 3.7, which is surprisingly reasonable given the lofty power and alcoholic clout this full-bodied wine possesses. Dense purple-colored , the 2010 displays a vivid yet astonishing array of spice box, red, blue and black fruits, crushed rock and spring flowers. The oak is well-concealed behind the lavish concentration and richness. Exceptionally pure, this unbelievable wine flirts with perfection. Unfortunately, there is 20% less of it than in 2009, and the tannins warrant a good 8-10 years of cellaring, as I suspect it could actually close down. This is another 40- to 50-year effort in 2010 that should elicit considerable interest from wine consumers.
