    The density and freshness of a great Pomerol red wine

    Property of Domaines Delon, the Chateau Nenin is one of the most beautiful references of the Pomerol appellation on the right bank of Bordeaux.

    Solar vintage, 2011 is the hottest year after the 2003 heat wave. Due to the high temperatures, 2011 allowed to obtain very good phenolic maturities and a great concentration of juices. However, the grapes had a good sugar-acidity balance thanks to the temperate nights. The early harvest of Château Nenin was thus held from 5 to 15 September 2011.

    Resulting from an blend of merlot (88%) and cabernet franc (12%), Chateau Nenin 2011 reveals the full personality of each grape variety. Greedy, powerful and fleshy without losing anything in freshness, the Merlot blends perfectly with the elegance, finesse, length and density of the Cabernet Franc. On the palate, the tannins take shape with a dense and tight structure. Chateau Nenin 2011 seduces by its massive allure and its great freshness. A great Pomerol to be tasted right now that can still evolve while in the cellar.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    This is the Right Bank outpost of the Delon family that also owns Leoville Las-Cases. While they have made major improvements to Nenin, I feel it still has a Medoc-like personality in spite of the fact it is about 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The 2011 Nenin displays an attractive, clean, raspberry and black currant-scented nose, good richness, and a Medoc-like firmness. It is a medium-bodied, pleasant 2011 to drink over the next 7-8 years.
