    The elegant freshness and tension of a red wine from Pomerol

    Great wine of the property, Chateau Nenin is one of the most prestigious wines of Pomerol, a symbolic name for the right bank of Bordeaux.

    After a beginning of the vegetative cycle marked by cool and humid temperatures, the 2012 vintage will have been marked by exceptional sunny weather conditions from mid-July to the end of September. At Chateau Nenin, the harvest took place from September 21st to October 10th.

    Chateau Nenin 2012 is made from a blend of merlot (70%) and cabernet franc (30%). This great Pomerol subtly combines the characteristics of each grape variety: the power and roundness of the Merlot blend with the finesse and complexity of the Cabernet Franc.

    On tasting, Chateau Nenin 2012 seduces the palate with its unctuous and tasty texture. The cru retains a very nice balance thanks to a sustained tension and great elegance. An elegant and complex wine that will delight lovers of great Pomerol.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Nenin, which is the same blend as the 2015, appears to be maturing nicely in bottle after an impressive showing in barrel. Those cassis and blackberry notes are locked in, now augmented by subtle sea spray and rose petal scents, all with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, very well balanced, though not enormous depth towards the finish that feels just a little austere at the moment; but there is appreciable length and a silky smooth texture. Give this 2-3 more years in barrel. Tasted January 2016.
