A decade of aging has refined this cherry-edged Bordeaux, which comes from a five-acre plot in Pomerol.
What You Need To Know
Château Certan Marzelle grows only Merlot, unlike many estates in Bordeaux’s Pomerol district, which often blend in a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet Franc to add oomph to Merlot’s lush fruit. For years the vines were part of a larger estate that had once used the same name, until 1999, when it was purchased by the well-known Moueix family. Owners of several of the most prestigious châteaux in Bordeaux (including Pomerol’s Pétrus and Trotanoy), the Moueixes split the estate in two, forming the small, all-Merlot Château Certan Marzelle and a super-pricey sister estate, Château Hosanna, which also grows Cabernet Franc.
