Since Michel Rolland was hired as a consultant in 2003, it appears things are moving forward in a positive manner at Certan de May.However, the 2001 reveals some of the problems this estate’s wines have exhibited in the past, including a distinct herbal component that borders on being vegetal. It possesses a dark plum/ruby color as well as a bouquet of fresh mushrooms intermixed with spice box, bell peppers, and cedar. This medium-bodied, round, elegant but herbaceous Pomerol resembles a Loire Valley Cabernet Franc more than a wine from the appellation’s highly regarded plateau section. Its low acidity and up-front personality suggest it should be consumed over the next 7-10 years. This is one 2001 Pomerol that is significantly behind the quality of the 2000.
