Classic Pomerol character of black olives, wet earth, violets and dark fruit. Full-bodied, tight and silky-textured with fabulous texture. Stones and dark berries. So serious and real. The depth is like looking down a well. Give it three to four years to integrated but already beautiful. Try in 2023 and onwards.
Old vine (25 years plus) Cabernet Franc and Merlot on the plateau close to Trotanoy make up the majority of Nenin's grand vin, and here we see that 2015 Pomerols are not just exuberant but capable of real power. Right now this is closed, with a focus on grip and tension - it was only bottled in June 2017. There is almost a touch of austerity on the finish, the Cabernet Franc giving a little kick and restraining the exuberance of the Merlot. The fruit here is clearly perfectly ripe, but still has integrity and a shiver of freshness. A good 8-10 years before reaching its peak. 3.7pH. (JA)
The 2015 Nénin was one of the most pleasant surprises of my tastings of bottled 2015s, as the wine has really come together nicely since I tasted it from barrel. Deep, pliant and wonderfully fleshy, the 2015 has so much to offer. Above all else, it is flat out delicious. Soft contours add to the wine's considerable near and medium-term appeal. (AG)
Notes of ripe plums, black cherries, freshly laid asphalt and scorched earth dominate the bouquet of the 2015 Château Nenin. Made from 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, it offers a beautifully ripe, medium to full-bodied personality, bright acidity, and sweet tannin, and is going to evolve gracefully for 15-20 years. I was blown away by this wine when I tasted it from barrel, and it certainly didn’t disappoint from bottle.
The 2015 Nenin has a clean and fresh redcurrant and cranberry-scented bouquet with touches of black truffle and cold stone. I would just like a little more intensity here but it may well have closed down since bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very harmonious and taut, quite understated when compared to the Nenins of a few years ago, segueing into a white pepper-tinged finish. Very fine.

Lush and ripe, set apart in this vintage by good, juicy energy that allows the plum sauce, raspberry pâte de fruit and cherry compote flavors to be vibrant and engaging, backed by red licorice and singed vanilla details on the straight-backed finish. Best from 2022 through 2035. (JM)
Very dense, this wine holds a high amount (33%) of Cabernet Franc, which gives a beautiful perfumed character as well as restraining the exuberance of the Merlot. It is full of tannins that will allow the wine to age well. Drink from 2025. (RV)
