Ratings & Reviews

97 Points - James Suckling:
"This has a darker sheen of fruits in the blackberry and blood-plum spectrum with sweetly spicy and earthy aromas and some violets to boot. The palate has quite a forthright tannin firmness. A very long, linear wine with a full body and a smooth, fresh, blueberry/plum finish. An impressive wine that rolls endlessly through the finish. This has plenty of ageing potential." (Feb 3, 2018)

95+ Poins - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Certan de May is composed of 80% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Cabernet Franc, displaying a medium garnet-purple color and nose of warm red cherries, mulberries, crushed red and black plums and raspberry leaves with nuances of wild thyme, dried roses, cloves and eucalypt. Medium to full-bodied and boasting great harmony in the mouth, the palate delivers loads of red and black fruit layers interspersed with floral and herb accents and framed by a firm, ripe, fine-grained backbone, finishing with wonderful length and freshness." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Feb 21, 2018)

94 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"ThThe 2015 Certan de May is deep, powerful and imposing. Dark blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice and mint are some of the many notes that fill out the wine's frame. Vertical in feel, with potent tannins, the 2015 needs time to fully come together. Even so, it does not appear to be an especially refined wine. The blend is 80% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2018)

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"With its proportion of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has an elegant profile, while the Merlot reflects the natural opulence of the vintage. Acidity, concentration and black fruits are all there, along with the tannin that will allow the wine to age. Drink from 2026." - Roger Voss (4/1/2018)

93 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"Always one of the softer wines in the Moueix range (although owned by Jean-Luc Barreau), this has a pronounced edge of smoke and graphite, feeling precise yet pliant. The velvety tannins are classic Pomerol, suiting the vintage and giving intensity to the fruit, but it's a wine that can be approached a little more early than the others in the range - think five to eight years here. Drinking Window 2021 - 2035" - Jane Anson (Nov 30, 2017)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Pretty raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit aromas and flavors are infused liberally with accents of mulling spices, while velvety structure runs underneath. Black tea and cinnamon details infuse the finish, which has a slightly firm plum skin edge. Best from 2022 through 2032. 2,000 cases made." - JM (Web Only 2018)

90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Falling under the Moueix umbrella and based on 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Certan de May comes from a top terroir situation between La Fleur Petrus, Petrus, and Vieux Château Certan, certainly good neighbors to have. It’s a beauty offering medium to full-bodied terrific notes of black cherries, underbrush, spice and dried earth. With fine tannin, nicely integrated acidity, loads of character, and moderate tannin, it’s unquestionably an outstanding wine to drink over the coming two decades."
