2000 Nenin Bordeaux Blend - France - Bordeaux - Pomerol - Red

France - Bordeaux - Pomerol

Red Bordeaux Blend
Producer Notes

Among its Pomerol brethren, Chateau Nenin proves to be unique. With over 30 hectares under vine located adjacent to the city of Libourne, Nenin is one of only a scattered few large estates in its region. The structure itself, an elegant, two-storey 19th-century chateau, stands out in an otherwise unassuming Pomerol landscape. By the mid-1990s, Nenin's history of inconsistent successes,... More »

($67-$85) Good ruby-red color. Spicy aromas of currant, raspberry, licorice, coffee and tobacco leaf. Sweet, thick and layered, with slightly raw flavors of leather, licorice, tobacco leaf, bitter chocolate and fresh herbs. Finishes with very firm, slightly dry tannins and more obvious ripeness than the 2001.

Deep, vibrant crimson. Very fiercely aromatic. Quite dry and uncompromising on the palate. The fruit was almost killed by the winemaking somehow? Velvety compared to stablemate Léoville Las Cases, but not charming enough in the Pomerol context for me.

This wine has turned out exceptionally well, and to my thinking, is the finest Nenin yet made under the Delon administration. A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, the opaque purple-colored 2000 boasts corpulent, thick, juicy, jammy black fruits redolent with flavors of blackberries, cherries, and plums. Hints of licorice, truffles, and subtle wood are present as well. There is also tremendous opulence, thickness, and structure. A comparison with the best 1975s from Pomerol could be made, but the 2000 is sweeter and fleshier. It is a brilliant success for Nenin.

It shows a serious amount of subtle aromas and flavors of tobacco, cherry and chocolate character. Full-bodied, with velvety, ripe tannins and a long and caressing finish. Yummy already. Hard to hold back. This is one of the best Nenins I have tasted in decades. 2,500 cases made.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
