Produced on a 32 hectare vineyard, Chatea Nenin is a red wine from the Pomerol appellation. The vines are on average 25 years old. The terroir, typical of Pomerol, is composed of clay and gravel-based soil. The 2016 vintage is composed of 75% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot.
2016 is distinguished by its complicated weather conditions. From January - March there was a lot of precipitation, which restored water reserves in the soil. Temperatures in March were mild and allowed the buds to begin to burst. April was rather cold and rainy, slowing down the vine development. Mid-June temperatures were as expected, with high temperatures and droughts. Maturation occurred rapidly and homogenously during the first fortnight of August. Harvest took place on September 23rd - October 13th, the berries had reached their optimal ripeness thanks to the beautiful weather.
Chateau Nenin 2016 is a complex blend of richness and fruity aromas provided by Merlot and the fantastic freshness of Cabernet Franc. On the palate, Nenin 2016 is opulent with tannins that are smooth and present. This wine combines an incredible elegance and power.
