Porthos offers you insider access to another deliciously age-worthy discovery under $100 from Bordeaux’s unanimously acclaimed 2016 vintage. The most ardent Bordeaux connoisseurs covet the rare reds of the village of Pomerol, home of fabled bottlings from Chateau Petrus and Le Pin that trade for $3,000 - $4,000 per bottle (seriously!). Savvy collectors rank Pomerol neighbor Vieux Château Certan as one of the top relative bargains in Bordeaux and their special “La Gravette de Certan” bottling offers particular value given the quality of this 2016 vintage. Wine Spectator magazine has proclaimed the 2016 vintage the “best year since the benchmark 2010 vintage” declaring “the Right Bank {Pomerol} offers a flood of great reds.”
