Description
The nose of this Pomerol offers an unparalleled charm. Fugue de Nenin 2016 is a wine bright with black fruit. This delicious second wine of château Nenin, it is chatty but without being excessive. On the palate it displays a great freshness in taste and is structured around creamy, well-rounded tannins, which are nevertheless delicately tactile. The Cabernet Franc gives this Pomerol a beautiful spine and a foundation that imposed over the latter. One can appreciate the length at the end of the palate and this fruity character, which persists throughout the nose all the way to the tasting. A great success!

Notes
Second label of Chateau Nenin

 

  • 93 James Suckling

    Dense and rich second wine of Nenin with dark berries, chocolate and hazelnuts. Full body, round and chewy tannins, yet polished and finished. Try pairing this wine with beef, game, lamb, mushrooms, or grilled meats.

  • 90 Robert Parker Wine Advocate

    The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Fugue de Nenin reveals plum preserves, baked black berries and black cherries with wafts of cigar box and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, plush and packed with black fruit and minty layers, it finishes long.

  • 90 Jeb Dunnuck

    This elegant, medium-bodied, impressively balanced 2016 has a fleshy, forward style as well as classic damp earth, lead pencil, cedar, and tobacco aromas and flavors. It’s a delicious, easy-drinking wine that’s going to deliver ample pleasure over the coming decade. (1st March, 2019)

  • 90 Wine Spectator - James Molesworth

    This has a seductive feel, with velvety plum and raspberry compote notes stretching from start to finish while light floral, anise and apple wood accents chime in and out. Nice integration through the finish. Best from 2022 through 2032. 6,250 cases made. –JM
