The balance of a complex and refined Pomerol wine

The Delon family is very important in the world of Bordeaux wines. From the right bank to the left bank, from Saint-Julien with Chateau Leoville Las Cases to Pomerol with Chateau Nenin, the wines produced by this family represent some of the very best Bordeaux wines.

Following its acquisition in 1997 by Jean-Hubert Delon from his cousins in the Despujol family, who owned this Pomerol property since 1847, Chateau Nenin was radically transformed. From the vineyard to the cellars, everything has been renovated to produce a wine of exemplary refinement, a wine that achieves a great balance between power and elegance, purity and refinement, in addition to great potential for age.

The 2010 vintage in Bordeaux immediately became legendary. The superb weather conditions of the end of the season in particular allowed the fruit to ripen fully and reach that certain balance necessary for the production of wines with great aging potential and charming aromatic profile.

At Chateau Nenin, the harvest took place between September 16th and 29th. The production was 37hl per hectare and the final blend of the estate’s First Wine is 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, a rather classic Pomerol.

In the glass, this Pomerol wine offers great aromatic complexity, with notes of red and black berries, as well as a nice touch of terroir that can be interpreted as "mineral". This is a refined wine but with a gorgeous weight and a substance that is perfectly balanced. The vintage effect brings to the glass this certain freshness of 2010 Pomerol, a fresh energy that helps extend the weight of this wine into a particularly long finish. These characteristics, along with its great aging potential, make this vintage one of the most successful in the modern history of Chateau Nenin. A superb Pomerol !

Parker : 90 / 100
Wine Spectator : 92 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The outstanding 2010 Nenin (82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc) displays more boysenberry, mocha and black currants. With nearly 14% natural alcohol, it possesses plenty of glycerin, loads of fruit, and broad, classic notes of licorice and plums. This wine should be drinkable in 2-4 years and last for 15 or more.
