Tasting Notes and Scores

93-94+

Wine Advocate

I was immensely impressed by the quality of the 2021 Nenin, a wine that's the fruit of an immensely strict selection—and several consecutive nights of frost protection. Offering up aromas of sweet plums, wild berries, raw cocoa, black truffles and nicely integrated new oak, it's a medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety wine with lively acids, melting tannins and a layered, concentrated profile with a long, penetrating finish. Tasted twice.

Neal Martin

The 2021 Nénin includes 36% Cabernet Franc this year, picked from 25 September until 4 October and raised in 35% new oak. There is plenty of blue fruit on the nose, a touch of crushed violet and Indian ink, quite forward and precocious for the growing season. The palate is medium-bodied with a velvety smooth opening, the new oak neatly integrated, fine acidity with a gentle grip on the finish where the Cabernet Franc subtle tobacco and slightly ferrous notes. Good potential. 13.31% alcohol

Jancis Robinson

Elegant and fresh with tidy tannins. Aromatic for Nénin at this stage. Clean if not full throttle. Slight oak presence. Should improve with élevage. (JL) 13.3%

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 Nénin is laced with dark cherry, plum, leather, spice, tobacco, menthol and licorice. Pliant and supple, the 2021 is a very pretty Pomerol with a good back bone of tannin and plenty of verve. Lovely.

Jane Anson

They believe in structure at Nenin to be identified as Domaines Delon, even within the universe of Pomerol, and you can feel it here, along with the high levels of Cabernet Franc. There is Pomerol exuberance also, with smoked butterscotch notes on the opening beats, and plenty of blackberry and black cherry fruits, along with the signature pencil lead, graphite and crushed earth. This is not exuberant but entirely within the classic estate signature, with a kick of bitter almond on the finish, and a hint of iodine. 65IPT. Harvest September 23 to October 4. 35% new oak, 3.53ph. No frost impact here, but 21 nights of fighting it through the early season
