WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

“Sweet mulberry and black cherry fruit, earth, crushed rock, and spring flower characteristics are followed by a wine displaying a full-bodied texture, sweet tannin, and admirable purity” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

OUR NOTES

On the eve of the 1997 harvest, Jean-Hubert Delon purchased Château Nenin, which had belonged to his cousins, the Despujol family, since 1847. Château Nenin's vineyards grow on a single block of land with the exception of one plot. It is very large, with 32 hectares of vines in production. As a consequence, its terroir includes the many, diverse soils that characterize Pomerol. It is mainly made up of Oligocene deposits covered by Dordogne alluvial gravelly formations; siliceous clay and gravel, quartz, granite, iron-deposits and basalt pebbles. Château Nenin's vineyards grow on the great clay-gravel terroirs of the Pomerol Plateau.

According to the Delon family, Château Nenin is the epitome of a great Pomerol "vin de garde" (wine for laying down). It combines power and elegance, complexity and balance, purity and refinement. 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 Nenin blossoms over time.
