2016 Chateau Nenin Pomerol



Winery notes:

“According to the Delon family, Château Nénin is the epitome of a great Pomerol “vin de garde” (wine for laying down). It combines power and elegance, complexity and balance, purity and refi nement. The gradual increase of Cabernet Franc within the vineyards gives the wine tautness, distinction and freshness. To really appreciate the Grand Vin’s ageing ability, you may need to be patient. Like all great Pomerol vins de garde, Château Nénin blossoms over time.”

Critical acclaim:

“96 points.

“Aromas full of crushed blackberries and blueberries with fresh mushrooms and sandalwood. Full-bodied, very tight and focused with fabulous density of fruit in the center palate and a long, flavorful finish. Shows strength and, at the same time, finesse. Try after 2023.” – James Suckling

“95 points.

“Made by the winemaking team of Léoville las Cases in Saint-Julien, this is a densely structured wine, rich in generous fruit while also having balanced acidity.” – Wine Enthusiast

“94 points.

“Deeper colored, with a saturated purple color, the 2016 Château Nenin is 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc brought up in 35% new French oak. It gives up a terrific bouquet of black cherries cassis, graphite, and some gravelly minerality and damp earth notes. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated yet elegant wine that has fine tannins, good acidity, and a great finish. It’s just a classic, beautifully balanced, elegant wine that does everything right.” – Jeb Dunnuck
