A Pure and Refined Pomerol Wine with Character

A superb property acquired by the Domaines Delon in 1997, Chateau Nenin embodies the model of a great Pomerol par excellence.

Located on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region, the Chateau is quite an exception with 32 hectares of vineyards in production, planted in the largest gravely clay soils of Pomerol, in an appellation where properties have an average of ten or so planted hectares.

A vintage of contrasts, with an episode of frost in April and an early harvest, 2017 has nevertheless yielded some excellent wines, among which are those of Chateau Nenin.

The higher part of the Pomerol plateau, known for its clay-dominated soils, saw the Merlot grapes achieving optimal maturity, displaying a beautiful, voluptuous structure, while the gravel-sandy soils brought finesse and refinement. The Cabernet Franc, so dear to the identity of Pomerol, proved to be powerful and complex.

Through a subtle harmony, the Chateau Nenin 2017 brilliantly reveals the expression of each grape variety in a blend dominated by Merlot (58%), supplemented by Cabernet Franc (42%). The aromatic bouquet displays a nose full of expression, with pure notes of fruit and graphite recalling the minerality of the terroir. The palate is seductive with a deliciously creamy texture and a beautiful framework, presenting a silky touch on the mouth, as is typical of the wines of Pomerol. The wine finally unfolds into a beautifully long and persistent finish. A pure and distinguished expression of Pomerol, designed to be aged.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 58% Merlot and 42% Cabernet Franc--the highest percentage of Cabernet Franc ever--the 2017 Nenin is deep garnet-purple in color and comes galloping out of the glass with exuberant notes of baked black cherries, plum preserves and black raspberries plus suggestions of licorice, candied violets and fallen leaves with a waft of melted chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers bags of youthful black fruits with seriously spicy sparks and a beautifully plush texture, finishing long with a compelling mineral kick.
