Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

($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)

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?

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.
