Chateau Nenin has been owned by the Delon family (owners of the Second Growth Chateau Leoville Las Cases) since 1840 and lies in Pomerol, just outside the village of Catusseau on the south western slopes of the highest plateau. The chateau sits in a 14 acre park which is rather unusual in Pomerol as the wine estates there tend to be made up of a patchwork of smaller properties. The oenologist at the chateau is Jacques Boiseenot who oversees wine making at no less than four out of the five Bordeaux First Growths. Nenin is considered to be a top Pomerol and has long been a favourite of the British Royal Family.
Critics Scores: Robert Parker, 91 points:
“The finest vintage since 2000, the 2006 Nenin comes across as a classic Pomerol with lush kirsch liqueur, mocha, mineral, and floral characteristics. Made in a muscular, rich, full-bodied style with moderate tannins as well as impeccable purity, texture, and length, it should drink well between 2012-2025.”
