1998 Chateau Certan de May Pomerol
Remarkably rich and concentrated. An enormous bouquet of spices, vanilla, oak, ripe rich black currants and plums. Should be upgraded to second growth.
International Wine CellarMedium full red. Rather subdued aromas of smoky raspberry and spiced cherry. Good extract and texture, but a bit ungiving in the middle, with some menthol and shoe polish notes. Not as ripe as the vintage's best examples, but has good concentration and firm backbone. A bit better today than it appeared a year ago.
