    Vieux Chateau Certan 1947
    1ms, 1htms, 2bsl, 1lwisl, excellent color
    Bottle (2)
    "A dazzling wine, which I have tasted a number of times over the years, the 1947 Vieux-Chateau-Certan is typical of so many 1947 Pomerols. Its thick, viscous, port-like style and texture are the hallmarks of this vintage. More advanced than the 1948, it reveals a smoky, meaty, truffle, and blackcurrant-scented nose, as well as massive, chewy flavors loaded with glycerin, extract, and alcohol. It exhibits more amber at the edge than the 1948, but, wow, what a mouthful of wine!" (97pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #95, Oct 1994)
