The 2019 Château Nenin is truly fantastic, and my money is on it being the finest vintage to date for this estate. Based on 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc brought up in just 45% new French oak, it offers a pure, medium-bodied, ethereal style carrying gorgeous red and black fruits, spring flowers, damp earth, and chocolate aromas and flavors. It's not a blockbuster and is all about purity, finesse, and elegance, yet it still brings beautiful richness and length. This gorgeous, seamless 2019 will drink well for 20-25 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Perfumed nose of crushed stones, blackberries and violets. Medium-to full-bodied with very fine tannins and fresh, minerally undertones. So long, showing bitter chocolate that turns to hazelnut and cocoa bean. Tight and precise at the end. 70% merlot and 30% cabernet franc. Try after 2025. - James Suckling

A brilliant vintage at Nenin, it displays so much nuance and complexity from the first moment. Fleshy powerful damson and raspberry fruits come barreling out of the glass at you, restrained by pencil lead and crushed rock minerality. Hard not to love this. In the cellar, they cut the extraction time down by half compared to 2018, because the skins were so thick, and yet still you get so much natural concentration, without sacrificing a feeling of lightness and juice. 40% new oak, 3.59ph. An upscore from my recent In Bottle tasting. It's not unusual for different aspects of a wine's personality to come out during a vertical - but what is certain is that this is one to look out for. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

The layers of fruit come through strongly on the nose. Plum and raspberry richness wrapped up with raspberry leaf and sage, this just gently tiptoes through the palate. Extraction is careful and delicate and yet there is a lot of power. This is always a Left Bank style of Pomerol giving a restrained savoury feel with freshness and classicism. Opens slowly in the glass and needs time over ageing. In the cellar, they cut the extraction time down by half compared to 2018, because the skins were so thick. 40% new oak.-Decanter

A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Nenin is deep garnet-purple colored. It gives up intense scents of crushed black plums, boysenberries, and chocolate-covered cherries, plus suggestions of sandalwood and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers very finely grained tannins and just enough freshness to lift the generous fruit, finishing spicy. - Lisa Perotti Brown, Wine Independent

2019 Nenin is the first vintage with a wax seal in the bottle, so you have been warned! Apparently the wax is one that does not crumble everywhere.This Pomerol retains the definition and focus that I discerned from barrel, coming across quite energetic with pretty Merlot fruit – raspberry coulis, red currant and hints of black truffle. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins and well-judged acidity, nothing too heavy or dense. A more elegant Nenin compared to previous vintages, with good persistence on the finish. This is well worth seeking out. 14.45%alcohol. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media

The 2019 Nénin has turned out very well. A burst of red berry fruit, blood orange, mint, sweet spice and floral accents gives Nénin its effusive, charming personality. Best of all, the 2019 will be easy to drink pretty much upon release. All the elements are impeccably balanced throughout. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Dark fruit and floral notes. Fresher than Fugue. Plenty of energy and drive but less overt opulence. Firm and structured on the palate. Almost médocain in presence.-James Lawther MW, JancisRobinson
