Description

A pleasant and energetic Pomerol Second Wine

The estate

Owned by Domaines Delon, Château Nénin embodies, according to the Delon family, "the expression of a great Pomerol meant to age". This 19th-century estate was acquired by the Delon family in 1997 and underwent a major restructuring, bringing Château Nénin to the top of high-quality Pomerol wines.

The vineyard

Situated in the Pomerol appellation, the vineyard of Château Nénin covers an area of 32 hectares. The vines are planted on a mosaic of soils composed of clay, silica gravel, quartz, granite, basalt pebbles and iron ore.

The wine

Fugue de Nénin is the Second Wine of Château Nénin, which was first produced in 1997. Fugue contains a higher proportion of Merlot than its predecessor, making it more accessible in its youth while still expressing both the identity of Pomerol and its estate. The name Fugue comes from the world of music, a fugue being the repetition of a tune, the Grand Vin of Château Nénin. Fugue de Nénin is a hedonistic, delicious, round and silky wine, which can be drunk earlier than the Grand Vin but will provide the same amount of pleasure.

The vintage

A very challenging year, 2021 was very complex to manage. However, the teams succeeded, thanks to their great dedication, in preserving the vineyard against all of the season’s climatic hazards and finally bringing the grapes to the stage of phenolic ripeness, which took place slowly but in a complete and qualitative manner. The noble terroir of the property did its work to produce smooth and elegant grapes that were harvested between September 24th and October 4th.

The blend

Fugue de Nénin 2021 comprises a blend of Merlot (92%) and Cabernet Franc (8%).
