2005 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 »

Issue Issue 138

($66-$80) Medium red. Currant, plum and mocha on the nose. Then nicely vinous in the mouth, with a rather serious underlying structure supporting the flavors of plum and chocolate. A bit stern but has good stuffing.

Drink Dates 2012-2025

Pure, intense black fruit. Rich aromas with a hint of vanilla and violets. Succulent and moreish - tannins are rich and ripe and upright but very come-hither. Delicious. (JH)

Drink Dates 2013-2033

Not surprisingly given the ownership by the Delon family (who also own Las Cases), Nenin always has a Medoc structure super-imposed on the ripe Merlot (75% of the blend, with the balance Cabernet Franc). The strong 2005 exhibits notes of sweet black cherries, licorice, and caramel in its medium to full-bodied, structured personality. It requires 5-7 years of cellaring, and should keep for two decades or more.

Very grapey on the nose, with mineral, tarragon and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with very well-integrated tannins and a light vanilla, berry and milk chocolate aftertaste. Subtle and balanced. The best Nenin in years.

Tasted On 10/31/2011

Textbook traditional right bank Merlot nose - all dried blood, iron and rust, with black plums lurking underneath. Flavours of black plum skins and blackberries, drying tannins, but finish is strangely soft. Time?

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.
