Vieux Château Certan老色丹堡創立於1745年,是波爾多Pomerol產區裡最古老的酒莊之一,並且也在早年就被評為Pomerol最佳酒莊之一。1924年出身比利時的酒商Georges Thienpont入主本酒莊,並且在他的家族手上持續經營至今;Georges Thienpont為他的酒採用了非常特別而顯眼的粉紅色酒瓶封籤,一直沿用至今成為一大特色。

Vieux Château Certan is a wine estate in the Pomerol appellation on Bordeaux's Right Bank, known for its rich, deeply colored red wine (usually) based on Merlot. It is consistently rated by judges and the press as one of the very best wines in the world, and achieves correspondingly high prices at auction. 

The vineyard covers 14 hectares (35 acres) and is one of the largest single block sites in the Right Bank. Many of the vines are 50 years old, with one parcel dating back to 1932. 

Vieux Château Certan neighbors Pétrus at the top and center of the Pomerol plateau. Most of the vines sit on the famed Gunz gravel terrace, which is made up of large pebbles and clay over an iron-rich subsoil. This is quite fertile, so care must be taken to limit vine vigor in favor of ripening grapes. Around 30 percent of the property lies on deeper clay soils.
