Chateau Certan de May was named for its original owners, the Demay family, who were the first owners of this Pomerol property. It is located on the Right Bank of the Gironde Estuary in the Pomerol appellation of Bordeaux. The current Vieux Chageaux Certan used to be party of this single Pomerol property, but was subdivided sometime after the French Revolution. The Demay family sold the property in 1925 to the Barrau-Badard family, who still own and operate the estate. Jean-Luc Barrau is the current proprietor, with Michel Rolland as the consulting enologist.

There are 5.5 hectares of vineyards on soils of 70% deep clay, the rest gravels. Vines are an average of 40 years of age, with many old vines, including some that survived the devasting frost of 1956. Vineyars are planted to 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Wines are aged with 60 - 80% new French oak, depending on the vintage, for an average of 18 months. The 2011 is a blend of all three grapes, with the majority from Merlot, then Cabernet Franc, and a small portion of Cabernet Sauvignon.
