The very beautiful 2015 year allowed Chateau Nenin producing a wine composed of 67% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc. With a good spicy and barely woody nose, this 2015 Chateau Nenin is supple with a good aromatic palette. Its palate is silky and firm with deep tannins accurately blended, and a vibrant finish. This 2015 vintage offers violet and raspberry aromas. From Pomerol appellation, the 2015 Chateau Nenin possesses a good structure. This wine should drink well between 2025 and 2040.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Nenin is a blend of 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Franc, cropped at 37 hl/ha between 17 September and 5 October over nine picking days. The alcohol arrives at 14.3%. Matured in 35% new oak, it sports a precise and elegant bouquet. This is a more nuanced Nenin compared to recent vintages whereby the Merlot is more expressive than the Cabernet Franc at present. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin. This is very well balanced, a more sophisticated Nenin than in recent years, due to Jean-Hubert Delon's decision to deselect some worthy parcels into the deuxième vin. There is an attractive sappiness towards the finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. I would just like to see that Cabernet Franc finding its voice by the time this 2015 is in bottle, but this Nenin has very good potential. One to watch.
