($66-$80) Medium red. Currant, plum and mocha on the nose. Then nicely vinous in the mouth, with a rather serious underlying structure supporting the flavors of plum and chocolate. A bit stern but has good stuffing.

Pure, intense black fruit. Rich aromas with a hint of vanilla and violets. Succulent and moreish - tannins are rich and ripe and upright but very come-hither. Delicious. (JH)

Not surprisingly given the ownership by the Delon family (who also own Las Cases), Nenin always has a Medoc structure super-imposed on the ripe Merlot (75% of the blend, with the balance Cabernet Franc). The strong 2005 exhibits notes of sweet black cherries, licorice, and caramel in its medium to full-bodied, structured personality. It requires 5-7 years of cellaring, and should keep for two decades or more.

Very grapey on the nose, with mineral, tarragon and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with very well-integrated tannins and a light vanilla, berry and milk chocolate aftertaste. Subtle and balanced. The best Nenin in years.

Textbook traditional right bank Merlot nose - all dried blood, iron and rust, with black plums lurking underneath. Flavours of black plum skins and blackberries, drying tannins, but finish is strangely soft. Time?
