Passed down for the past three generations, the estate is currently in the hands of Alexandre Thienpont. Vieux Château Certon is one of the oldest and most prestigious estates of Pomerol. It is located in the heard of the plateau, just a few rows of vines behind Pomerol’s famous church belfry.

Covering 14 hectares in one single block, Vieux Château Certan’s vineyards are the fruit of a century of painstaking work and careful decision making. Everything is intensely scrutinized and only environmentally-friendly viticulture techniques are used on the vines.

The terroir here is among some of the best. The soils are made up of large, round pebbles together with different clays over an iron-rich subsoil. It is the uniqueness of this outstanding terroir that gives Vieux Chateau Certanits distinctive character.
