2012 du Château Nénin Pomerol

Grapes Merlot, Cab Franc
Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Pomerol & Lalande de Pomerol
Village Pomerol
ABV 13.65%

82% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc. Bright ruby, with rose petal nose and texture like soft cool rose petals too. Drys a little in a nicely tonic way on the Cabernet Franc. This is a really convincing wine although it could do with a touch more drive on the finish. Rating: 90+ L&S (Apr 2013)

The improvements that are apparent in the grand vin are also on show here. The alcohol is on the high side, despite the early harvest, but this is not a powerful Pomerol. It’s bright and breezy, with notes of plum and red cherry, fine tannins and well-integrated oak. Drink: 2018-28. Rating: 92 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com(Apr 2013)

Massive colour and Merlot richness. Tea-leaf aroma. lifted and lively. but a bit harsh in terms of jagged acidity. Just a tad confected. Sudden finish. 2016 - 2024. Rating: 15.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Apr 2013)

Bright, sweet and fleshy. Great Merlot expression. Excellent for a 2nd wine. Drink: 2016 - 2022. Rating: 16.25 James Lawther MW, decanter.com(Apr 2013)

Rating: 17 Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com(Apr 2013)

The veneer of toast still needs to be absorbed, with the core of plum and blueberry fruit sitting in reserve. Delivers a polished feel through the spice-tinged finish. A bit more backward than most at this stage. Rating: 88-91 James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator(Apr 2013)
