Ch Nenin 2018
Pomerol€ 67.76/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Wine Spectator – 93-96/100
Açaí and blackberry fruit flavors are melded with licorice snap and Black Forest cake notes in this exotic offering. There’s enough energy to keep this honest on the finish too.
The Wine Advocate – Robert Parker – 93-95/100
The 2018 Nenin is made up of 63% Merlot and 37% Cabernet Franc and has 14.6% alcohol. Yields were 33.8 hectoliters per hectare, and grapes were harvested between September 13 and October 12. The wine is to be aged in barriques, 45% new, and the finished blend was put into barrels last December. Deep purple-black in color, it sings of Morello cherries, Black Forest cake, licorice and lavender with a core of plum preserves, unsmoked tobacco and warm blackberries plus a waft of Provence herbs. Full-bodied and concentrated yet bursting with energy, it has a solid backbone of firm, rounded tannins and bags of freshness, finishing long.
