I was immensely impressed by the quality of the 2021 Nenin, a wine that's the fruit of an immensely strict selection—and several consecutive nights of frost protection. Offering up aromas of sweet plums, wild berries, raw cocoa, black truffles and nicely integrated new oak, it's a medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety wine with lively acids, melting tannins and a layered, concentrated profile with a long, penetrating finish. Tasted twice. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Very fine tannins with a medium body and a fresh center-palate. Hints of spices and dried lemon peel. Bright and focused. Pretty fruit. Refined. - James Suckling

They believe in structure at Nenin to be identified as Domaines Delon, even within the universe of Pomerol, and you can feel it here, along with the high levels of Cabernet Franc. There is Pomerol exuberance also, with smoked butterscotch notes on the opening beats, and plenty of blackberry and black cherry fruits, along with the signature pencil lead, graphite and crushed earth. This is not exuberant but entirely within the classic estate signature, with a kick of bitter almond on the finish, and a hint of iodine. 65IPT. Harvest September 23 to October 4. 35% new oak, 3.53ph. No frost impact here, but 21 nights of fighting it through the early season - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Pot pourri aromas, perfumed and floral, with strawberry and cherry chocolate. Crunchy and lively on the palate with an initial mouthwatering sensation that comes from all corners of the mouth. It's a touch soft on the Mid-palate, losing a little of the glamorous and plush fruit forwardness, leaving some liquorice spice, iodine and clove in the middle. It’s just so fruity and lively at the beginning - the bitter grapefruit, blood orange, sour cherry and raspberry - then stops just a little short, suddenly becoming quite shy with the terroir effects of graphite and wet stone and the Cabernet Franc spice and focus coming in and taking over. It has a gently caressing feel however, classic and straight with a seamless tannic structure. Good precision on show and will benefit from ageing. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

The 2021 Nénin is laced with dark cherry, plum, leather, spice, tobacco, menthol and licorice. Pliant and supple, the 2021 is a very pretty Pomerol with a good back bone of tannin and plenty of verve. Lovely. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
