Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

This wine has turned out exceptionally well, and to my thinking, is the finest Nenin yet made under the Delon administration. A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, the opaque purple-colored 2000 boasts corpulent, thick, juicy, jammy black fruits redolent with flavors of blackberries, cherries, and plums. Hints of licorice, truffles, and subtle wood are present as well. There is also tremendous opulence, thickness, and structure. A comparison with the best 1975s from Pomerol could be made, but the 2000 is sweeter and fleshier. It is a brilliant success for Nenin.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

It shows a serious amount of subtle aromas and flavors of tobacco, cherry and chocolate character. Full-bodied, with velvety, ripe tannins and a long and caressing finish. Yummy already. Hard to hold back. This is one of the best Nenins I have tasted in decades. 2,500 cases made.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89(+?)

($67-$85) Good ruby-red color. Spicy aromas of currant, raspberry, licorice, coffee and tobacco leaf. Sweet, thick and layered, with slightly raw flavors of leather, licorice, tobacco leaf, bitter chocolate and fresh herbs. Finishes with very firm, slightly dry tannins and more obvious ripeness than the 2001.

About This Producer


Among its Pomerol brethren, Chateau Nenin proves to be unique. With over 30 hectares under vine located adjacent to the city of Libourne, Nenin is one of only a scattered few large estates in its region. The structure itself, an elegant, two-storey 19th-century chateau, stands out in an otherwise unassuming Pomerol landscape. By the mid-1990s, Nenin's history of inconsistent successes, checkered with ostensibly lackadaisical winemaking, opened the door for a super-second inspired makeover project.

In 1997, Jean-Hubert Delon of Chateau Leoville Las-Cases acquired Nenin and undertook a radical restructuring of vineyards and facilities. Delon also hired winemaking guru Michel Rolland as consulting oenologist. Eager to prove himself on the Right Bank, Delon is passionate about Nenin and pays it the same attention to detail as Las-Cases. The resulting wine, "has become much fuller, more powerful with cleaner black fruits and chewy tannins," according to Neal Martin, and Robert Parker comments, "The new regime has swiftly put the wine back into the first division of Pomerol chateaux."

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
