Hints of bay leaf, creme de cassis, incense, damp earth and graphite are present in this ripe, medium to full-bodied, soft, evolved Pomerol. Deep plum/crimson, it should drink nicely for 12-15+ years.Robert Parker, Wine Advocate April 2012

Tasted twice at JP Moueix and the Syndicate de Pomerol. The Certan-de-May has a gorgeous bouquet with superb fruit intensity: macerated red cherries, raspberry and wild strawberry, all very pure and exuberant. The palate is full-bodied with svelte tannins, very good depth and cohesion with wonderful build in the mouth towards a structured finish. It does not quite have the persistency or the complexity to rank alongside the top-flight wines in recent vintage, but this is an excellent Pomerol 2011. Tasted April 2012.

Aromas and flavors of dark berries and chocolate follow through to a a full body, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Well done for the vintage. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

This has guts for the vintage, with good fleshy plum and blackberry fruit melded nicely already with anise and spice cake notes. Shows more weight than length, but that should come. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

100% Merlot. Deep crimson. Chocolate and cherry but fresh too. Very very fine, dry tannins, fresh and minerally on the palate. Completely unshowy but long and just a touch of chocolate coming back on the finish. More depth in the mid palate. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

The top five Pomerols from J.P Mouiex (Certan d May, Providence, Hosanna, La Fleur Petrus and Trotanoy) are absolutely terrific in 2011. Certan de May has a brilliant Richebourg-esque nose of rich liqueur fruit and spice. This continues on the wonderful, silky palate which has big but ripe tannins. Just lovely.
