Château Certan de May is a first class Pomerol estate that takes its name from a Scottish family who established themselves in Pomerol in the 17th century. It is now owned by Odette Barreau-Badar and is located in the east of the appellation, on the Pomerol plateau between Vieux-Chateaux Certan and Pétrus, and directly opposite Le Pin.
Certan de May's vines (Merlot 70%, Cabernet Franc 25%, Cabernet Sauvignon 5%) have an average age of 45 years and lie on sandy-gravel topsoils, underpinned by a hard-pan clay subsoil. Fermentation lasts 4-6 weeks in stainless steel, followed by up to a month's maceration before 16 months' oak ageing, 40% new.
