Maturity: Ready to drink, but will improve
I liked this wine better from cask as it appears to have dried out quickly, which is a danger with many of these 2007s. Currently, the wine is very tannic, the extraction seems pushed, and the fruit appears to have fallen out. Nevertheless, there are attractive plum, earth, and spice characteristics in the complex aromatics, but lean, austere tannins kick in in the mouth. It has not turned out as well as I had hoped.
Score: 90-93 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (176), April 2008

The 2007 Certan-de-May has a very attractive lift on the nose with pure black fruits, macerated black cherries and plum. Good fruit concentration. Full-bodied palate, chewy tannins, excellent fruit concentration and purity with a forceful, weighty finish. There is real succulence here. Certainly at the top of the Pomerol tree. Great wine. Tasted April 2008.
Score: 92-94 Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
