Chewy and rich with a walnut, almond and delicate chocolate character as well as the ripe fruit. Full and very rich. Drink now.
*** Cellar Selection *** Big and rich, this is a solid, dark and dense wine. Power and ripe fruit dominate the opulent structure. Produced by the Delon family of Léoville Las Cases in Saint-Julien, it is a wine for aging. Drink from 2020, but the wine will be developing for more years after that. (RV)
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Nenin, which is the same blend as the 2015, appears to be maturing nicely in bottle after an impressive showing in barrel. Those cassis and blackberry notes are locked in, now augmented by subtle sea spray and rose petal scents, all with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, very well balanced, though not enormous depth towards the finish that feels just a little austere at the moment; but there is appreciable length and a silky smooth texture. Give this 2-3 more years in barrel. (NM)
Features a strong roasted alder frame, with a slightly burly core of ganache, espresso, crushed plum and blackberry notes. The grippy finish sports ample briar and currant paste elements. Gutsy, but everything is in place. Should gain more nuance with cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2024. 3,000 cases made. (JM)
The 2012 Nenin is round, soft and caressing, with lovely overall texture and body. Ripe dark cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and spices meld into the expressive finish. Drink this supple, open-knit Pomerol over the next handful of years. Both of these 2012s from Jean-Hubert Delon's Pomerol property are successful. (AG)
