  • Robert Parker, May 2011, Score: 88

    Sightly less impressive than I had hoped for, but still excellent, this wine displays more herbaceousness than I recalled from barrel, but it is made in a classic style, with loads of spice as well as mocha-infused black currants and sweet cherries. It is elegant, cleanly made, and should drink nicely for at least a decade or more. Drink: 2011 - 2021

  • Robert Parker, April 2009, Score: 90-93

    A strong effort from owner Jean-Hubert Delon, the 2008 Nenin is a blend of 81% Merlot and 19% Cabernet Franc cropped at 34 hectoliters per hectare. 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. The grapes at this estate were harvested between September 29 and October 8.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2009, Score: 17.5

    Dense. Quite refined structure but with lovely rich supple fruit - really very impressive. As though all tightened up with a drawstring towards the end. Very rich at the start but lots of structure. A very successful Nénin.

  • Wine Spectator, April 2009, Score: 88-91

    Bright and focused, with raspberries and violets on the nose and palate. Full and very silky, with a lovely finish. Succulent.

Producer

Château Nenin

Region

Pomerol

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
