    A seductive and refreshing second wine from Pomerol

    Fugue de Nenin blends 79% Merlot and 21% Cabernet Franc. These grapes were harvested between September 23rd and October 13th, under excellent conditions due to a hot and dry summer with a beautiful Indian Summer following. The latter allowed the grapes to reach optimal maturity.

    The nose of this Pomerol offers an unparalleled charm. Fugue de Nenin 2016 is a wine bright with black fruit. This delicious second wine of château Nenin, it is chatty but without being excessive. On the palate it displays a great freshness in taste and is structured around creamy, well-rounded tannins, which are nevertheless delicately tactile. The Cabernet Franc gives this Pomerol a beautiful spine and a foundation that imposed over the latter. One can appreciate the length at the end of the palate and this fruity character, which persists throughout the nose all the way to the tasting. A great success!

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Blended of 79% Merlot and 21% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Fugue de Nenin reveals plum preserves, baked black berries and black cherries with wafts of cigar box and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, plush and packed with black fruit and minty layers, it finishes long.
