Winemaker Notes

Remarkably rich and concentrated. An enormous bouquet of spices, vanilla, oak, ripe rich black currants and plums. Should be upgraded to second growth.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Firm and concentrated, this wine has great structure and density along with acidity and berry flavor. There is an attractive final spicy element.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Shows a slight edge, with charcoal, game and tobacco notes out front. The core of steeped fig and macerated black currant fruit is studded with ganache and waits in reserve. Reveals a smoldering edge on the finish, offering a flicker of game. Best from 2016 through 2023.
JS 90
James Suckling
The aromas in this 2011 are impressive, with flowers, plums and currants. Full body with velvety tannins and pretty, ripe, juicy fruit. A tad hollow in the center palate but it doesn’t matter - still outstanding.

Chateau Certan de May, Pomerol, Bordeaux, France
Image of winery
Chateau Certan de May, fully named Chateau Certan de May de Certan, is located on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux wine region, in the commune of Pomerol in the department Gironde. As all wine produced in this appellation, Chateau Certan de May is unclassified but the estate is long estimated among the great growths of the region. It is located in the east of the appellation, on the Pomerol plateau between Vieux- Château-Certan and Pétrus, and directly opposite Le Pin. The estate's name has origins from the founding family, presumably of Scottish origin sometimes documented as Demay, who lived in France since the Middle Ages and were installed in Pomerol at the end of the 16th century. Archives state the family by Royal ordinance became masters of the fief of Certan, or Sertan, making this the oldest vignoble of the district, an area that also encompassed present day Vieux Chateau Certan and Chateau Certan-Giraud. The French Revolution led to the division of the domain, leaving the de May family with a small parcel of the original property, then called Petit-Certan. After the death of the last de May in 1925 the estate came to the Barreau-Badar family, the present day owners. It is currently managed by Jean-Luc Barreau.
