Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling
Aromas full of crushed blackberries and blueberries with fresh mushrooms and sandalwood. Full-bodied, very tight and focused with fabulous density of fruit in the center palate and a long, flavorful finish. Shows strength and, at the same time, finesse. Try after 2023.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

Made by the winemaking team of Léoville las Cases in Saint-Julien, this is a densely structured wine, rich in generous fruit while also having balanced acidity. Drink after 2027.

JD 94
Jeb Dunnuck
Deeper colored, with a saturated purple color, the 2016 Château Nenin is 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc brought up in 35% new French oak. It gives up a terrific bouquet of black cherries cassis, graphite, and some gravelly minerality and damp earth notes. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated yet elegant wine that has fine tannins, good acidity, and a great finish. It's just a classic, beautifully balanced, elegant wine that does everything right.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Features a core of dark boysenberry, açai berry and black currant fruit that is direct, pure and polished, carried by solid but integrated tannins through a slightly muscular finish. Offers a lingering licorice snap accent and a nice twang of iron-edged minerality. Well-built. Best from 2023 through 2033.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Blended of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Nenin is deep garnet-purple colored and opens with beautiful Black Forest cake, baked blackberries and blueberry compote scents over a core of Chinese five spice, sandalwood and lilacs. Medium to full-bodied and laden with black fruits and spicy layers, it has a gorgeous velvety frame and just enough freshness, finishing long and vibrant.
D 93
Decanter
The Delon family always produce a more Médoc style of Pomerol than you find with many of their right bank neighbours, and it's not always the safest choice for discovering the sheer exuberance of the appellation. This has an unmistakably serious edge, but alongside it is a totally gorgeous balance of pure, well-layered cassis, dried herbs and black spice. It has firm, chewy tannins and will take its time to come round.

Chateau Nenin, France
On the eve of the 1997 harvest, Jean-Hubert Delon purchased Chateau Nenin, which had belonged to his cousins, the Despujol family, since 1847. A major restructuring was immediately undertaken. The pruning and trellising methods were reviewed, the land was drained, the vines were replanted or uprooted, and the equipment modernized. The aging and storage cellars were extended and completely re-fitted, and air conditioning was added. A new vat room, furnished with state-of-the-art equipment, was built thereby completing the total transformation of the property.
