  • Neal Martin, July 2019, Score: 92

    The 2015 Nénin has a perfumed red currant and wild strawberry scented bouquet laced with tar and cedar, quite pure and delineated. The palate is medium-bodied with edgy tannin, a fine bead of acidity, plenty of graphite-tinged black fruit with a spicy and rather persistent finish. Excellent. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

  • Neal Martin, April 2016, Score: 92-94

    The 2015 Nenin is a blend of 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Franc, cropped at 37 hl/ha between 17 September and 5 October over nine picking days. The alcohol arrives at 14.3%. Matured in 35% new oak, it sports a precise and elegant bouquet. This is a more nuanced Nenin compared to recent vintages whereby the Merlot is more expressive than the Cabernet Franc at present. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin. This is very well balanced, a more sophisticated Nenin than in recent years, due to Jean-Hubert Delon's decision to deselect some worthy parcels into the deuxième vin. There is an attractive sappiness towards the finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. I would just like to see that Cabernet Franc finding its voice by the time this 2015 is in bottle, but this Nenin has very good potential. One to watch. Drink: 2022 - 2045

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2016, Score: 89-92

    The 2015 Nenin is 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Franc. Deep, pliant and expressive, the 2015 captures all of the sensuality of the year in its dark red cherry, plum, mocha, spice and leather nuances. Succulent and ripe, yet very much medium in body, the 2015 should drink well upon release. The 2015 is not especially complex or structured, but it is a delicious wine to enjoy for its bounty of fruit and impeccable overall balance.

  • James Suckling, April 2016, Score: 94-95

    Most structured and powerful Nenin I have tasted in 30 years. Full body incredible brightness and beauty. Loads of blackberry and mineral character. Extremely long and intense. Creamy texture goes on for minutes. 33% cabernet franc and 63% merlot.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2016, Score: 18.5+

    (67 Merlot, 33 Cabernet Franc) | 35% new oak. | 14.3% alc. | 37 hl/ha. Sensitive and well-judged this is a very fine wine with fruit leading the way and oak sitting in the background. Intense and full, but not heavy, this is a terrific Nénin and I am massively impressed by the splendid red theme and the stunning aroma that the Cabernet Franc brings to this wine. There is massive potential on this property because the vines are relatively young so goodness knows what will happen in the future. Fine tannins and no excessive astringency make this is a delight. This is, by some margin, a finer wine than both the 2009 and 2010 vintages.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2016, Score: 17

    New winemaker for the last two years. Lots of replanting. Nine days of picking spread over three weeks (17 September - 5 October). Used vertical and pneumatic press for different portions. Eric Boissenot advises on how to treat each lot. 8% of press wine in this final blend. 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Franc. Very dark and precise-looking - quite different from the Fugue. Rich but tense. Lots of heady ripeness but some structure too. I'm sure the press wine is doing a great job. Very luscious. Attention-grabbing without being at all exaggerated. 14.3% Drink 2025-2040

  • Tim Atkin, May 2016, Score: 94

    Right up there with the best vintages at this château since it was acquired by the Delon family in 1997, this is a structured, intense, but vivacious Pomerol showing fine-grained tannins and the grassy freshness of good Cabernet Franc. The oak will integrate over the next couple of years. Drink: 2022-32

  • Wine Spectator, April 2016, Score: 91-94

    Packed with fresh plum, black licorice and boysenberry coulis flavors, all inlaid with enticing spice notes. Offers a pure finish, leaning a bit toward stony cut rather than the velvety side. A very solid effort.


Château Nenin

Purchased by the Delon family of Léoville Las Cases in 1997, Ch Nenin has quickly ascended the Bordeaux quality ladder.



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.
