The wines show a good intense color, with a normal evolution; on the nose, one finds a vivid bouquet with floral and fruits scents; on the palate, a good harmony and balance with fresh tannins ending on an aromatic and very pleasant finale. These are charming and typically Bordeaux wines in their complexity and finesse.
As is the way in Pomerol, this chateau has had its name changed by the current manager, Christian Moueix, from Certan Guiraud (after the family that owned it) back to its original Certan Marzelle. Whatever the nomenclature, the wine itself is impressive, if tough. It is dense, dominated by black fruits, and a solid structure. Made from 100% Merlot. Score: 91.
