Chateau Certan Guiraud 1961
|Brand||Chateau Certan Guiraud|
This wine has gotten mixed reviews in my notes. Several years ago it was big and powerful, but coarse, dumb, and totally lacking in finesse. At a vertical tasting of Vieux-Chateau-Certan, it was still a little rough around the edges, but displayed rich, deep, youthfully scented fruit, full body, plenty of weight and power, and impressive length. The score reflects the better effort.

This was tight and closed at first, then opened up into a plush, cherry-scented claret with nice depth and round, smooth texture supported by just enough tannin.-
