JS 97
James Suckling
This is a special wine with unique black-cherry character and hints of hazelnuts. Full bodied, tight and totally melted together with the firm and ultra-fine tannins Extremely long.
Barrel Sample:96-97
WS 96
Wine Spectator
Açaí and blackberry fruit flavors are melded with licorice snap and Black Forest cake notes in this exotic offering. There's enough energy to keep this honest on the finish too.
Barrel Sample:93-96
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Nenin is made up of 63% Merlot and 37% Cabernet Franc and has 14.6% alcohol. Yields were 33.8 hectoliters per hectare, and grapes were harvested between September 13 and October 12. The wine is to be aged in barriques, 45% new, and the finished blend was put into barrels last December. Deep purple-black in color, it sings of Morello cherries, Black Forest cake, licorice and lavender with a core of plum preserves, unsmoked tobacco and warm blackberries plus a waft of Provence herbs. Full-bodied and concentrated yet bursting with energy, it has a solid backbone of firm, rounded tannins and bags of freshness, finishing long.
Barrel Sample: 93-95
D 92
Decanter

This has incredibly clear pencil lead and graphite flavours from the very first moment (I’ve tasted it a few times and always got this (to the point that I genuinely recommend it to wine students who are studying flavours!) but once you get beyond this, everything is precise and well fleshed out with beautiful ripe red fruits. A little higher than usual Cabernet Franc is in the blend and these are massal selection vines which are flavourful and rich in salinity. Drinking Window 2026 - 2038. Barrel Sample: 92

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.
