A vintage of strong climatic contrasts, 2018 will be remembered in Bordeaux for its wet winter, followed by a mild and rainy spring. From July onwards, the summer brought radiant sunshine that lasted until the date of the harvest. The grape harvest began on September 13th and ended on October 10th, taking place under the best possible climatic and health conditions, with the fruit having reached the perfect stage of ripeness.
Blending Merlot (88%) and Cabernet Franc, the Chateau Nénin's Fugue de Nénin 2018 offers a magnificent Pomerol expression. The vintage unveils a beautiful dress with a rich purple color, and shimmering purple reflections. The aromatic bouquet seduces with its intense fruity expression, literally leaping from the glass to reveal aromas of black cherry, blackcurrant jam and plum, with hints of chocolate. Fresh cedar notes, delicate floral fragrances (iris) and mineral graphite notes accentuate a bouquet so characteristic of Pomerol. On the palate, the Fugue de Nenin 2018 packs a delicious tannic structure, evolving a generous and juicy texture, and a fresh finish with beautiful minty notes. A magnificent Pomerol from Chateau Nenin in a great vintage for Bordeaux.
