    A red wine from Pomerol

    Château Nénin is located between Libourne and Pomerol. Unusual for the Pomerol appellation, this estate is spread over a large area that has 32 hectares of vines in production, and the estate benefits from a rich terroir. The blend of this wine is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc.

    At tasting, we can see that the Château Nénin 2001 has a deep reddish-purple colour. On the nose, we can smell truffle, black cherry, cranberry and currant. The palate offers quite large tannins, but the finish is short. The wine is at its peak (2016).

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    There have been major investments and improvements implemented at this estate by the Delon family, but the 2001 Nenin did not perform as well as I expected. It is pinched, tightly knit, and somewhat monolithic with surprisingly simple flavors. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of truffles, black cherries, cranberries, and currants. This blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc possesses medium body, moderately high tannin, and a short finish. I am sure there is more here, but the wine did not perform as well as I had hoped. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015.
