32% Cabernet Franc, 68% Merlot. Perfumed violet and blueberry scent to the enticing nose. Chewy, grippy and meaty but with impressive rich dark plum and more bitter damson fruit weight.

Back to signature Nenin after the lighter 2013 vintage, with graphite and pencil lead, rich back cherry and blackberry fruits, laced with black chocolate and black truffle. This needs more time, you can feel the tannins closing in on the finish suggesting they need a few more years to fully soften up. 35% new oak. Drinking range: 2024 - 2040 Rating: 93 Jane Anson, Decanter (Feb 2022)

The 2014 Nenin has a simple, clean redcurrant and cranberry scented bouquet that feels a little anonymous, does not quite exude Pomerol. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, nicely balanced with red cherry, cranberry and raspberry laced with black pepper and sage. The finish feels cohesive and persistent. This is a fine Pomerol that should offer 15 to 20 years of drinking pleasure. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. Drinking range: 2021 - 2036 Rating: 92 Neal Martin, (Mar 2018)

The 2014 Nenin is very pretty. Silky, polished and succulent on the palate, this is a wine of total charm. Inky blue/purplish fruit notes make a strong first impression. Topnotes from Cabernet Franc add tons of aromatic intensity and overall brightness. The 2014 has the charm to drink young and enough depth to age for a decade plus. Drinking range: 2019 - 2029 Rating: 92 Antonio Galloni, (Feb 2017)

Château Nénin

Two things make Château Nenin standout from the rest of Pomerol – at 32ha it is considerably larger than most in in this crowded appellation; and Nenin has a real bona fide 19th Century château at its core rather than the more usual small shed. Infact it appears more along the lines of something one might find in the Haut-Médoc which is perhaps fitting as, since 1987, it has been in common ownership with Château Potensac and the great Saint Julien estate of Château Leoville Las Cases. As one might expect with such a noble stable-mate, quality has advanced rapidly in line with a lot of healthy investment in the estate. The vineyards are planted with 78% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon with an average age of around 30 years. The second wine is Fugue de Nenin.
