Description

The Château Nénin 2014 is a blend of 68% Merlot and 32% Cabernet Franc, the highest percentage ever of the latter due to the ripeness. It has a very fine, quite complex bouquet that is one of the finest that I have encountered, the reorganisation of the vines since Jean-Hubert Delon took over in 1997 enhancing the complexity. There is real finesse here, something not always apparent in older vintages in Nénin. The palate is supple and fleshy on the entry. There is a gentle grip on the palate coupled with finesse that is not diminished as its fruit intensifies on the finish. One of the most precise Nénin's that I have encountered at this stage. 91-93 points, Neal Martin -The Wine Advocate

68% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc. Owned by Léoville-Las Cases and produced in the same vein. Layered fruit. Touch of Merlot sweetness. Firm, tight structure. Reticent and austere but will definitely age. 17.25 points, Decanter

A firm and lightly chewy young Nenin with an attractive berry, chocolate and walnut character. Very good length. 90-91 points, James Suckling
