Description

The freshness and aromatic richness of a Second Win from Pomerol

The estate

Owned by Domaines Delon, Château Nénin embodies, according to the Delon family, "the expression of a great Pomerol meant to age". This 19th century estate was acquired by the Delon family in 1997 and underwent a major restructuring, bringing Château Nénin to the top of high-quality Pomerol.

The vineyard

Upon a veritable mosaic of terroirs, the 32-hectare vineyard of Château Nénin is planted, all in one piece, in clayey soils, silica gravel soils, quartz, granite, basalt pebbles and iron ore.

The wine

Fugue de Nénin is the Second Wine of Château Nénin, which was first produced in 1997. Fugue contains a higher proportion of Merlot than its predecessor, making it more accessible in its youth while still expressing both the identity of Pomerol and its estate. The name Fugue comes from the world of music, a fugue being the repetition of a tune, the Grand Vin of Château Nénin. Fugue de Nénin is a hedonistic, delicious, round and silky wine, which can be drunk earlier than the Grand Vin but will provide the same amount of pleasure.

The vintage

2020 began with a wet and mild winter, preceding a spring with unstable climatic conditions. Although the union of heavy rainfall and great mildness encouraged a historical earliness, the sufficient water reserves allowed the vineyard to tackle the summer conditions. Alternating hot days and cold nights up to the harvests ensured that the grapes ripened evenly.

Blend

This 2020 Fugue de Nénin is made of a blend of Merlot (90%) and Cabernet Franc (10%).

Tasting

Balanced and tasty, the 2020 Fugue de Nénin seduces with its smooth touch as well as its generous and fruity palate, elevated by a beautiful freshness.
