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.

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.

Owned by Léoville-Las-Cases and produced in the same vein. Layerd Fruit. Touch of Merlot sweetness. Firm, tight structure. Reticent and austere but will definitely age. (Highly Recommended Pomerol, Decanter.) Drinking range: 2022 - 2035 Rating: 90+ James Lawther MW, decanter.com (May 2015)

Dark red cherries, plums, new leather, menthol and spices meld together in the 2014 Nenin. A healthy dollop of Cabernet Franc adds pretty aromatic overtones, but the 2014 remains an open, fruit-driven wine to drink young. The blend is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, with a bit more Franc than normal, as the Merlot was more challenged by the summer rains. Tasted two times. Rating: 89-92 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Apr 2015)

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.
