2012 Nenin 75CL
The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, very well balanced, though not enormous depth towards the finish that feels just a little austere at the moment; but there is appreciable length and a silky smooth texture. Give this 2-3 more years in barrel. Tasted January 2016.
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 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 Nénin blossoms over time.
