Powerful and tannic with chewy mouth feel. Mineral, stone
and blueberry character. Full and intense. Very tight now.
Angular tannins that will soften with time. Better in 2020.
VINOUS / NEAL MARTIN
The 2010 Nénin has a straightforward bouquet that leans
more towards red than black fruit, a touch of Chinese
5-spice developing with aeration, hints of dark chocolate.
The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins and a fine
bead of acidity. It is not a complex Pomerol, but there is
plenty of substance with a lovely dark chocolate and truffle
tinged finish that lingers in the mouth. Drink now or keep
for another decade.
WINE ADVOCATE / LISA PERROTTI BROWN
Deep garnet-purple colored, it charges out of the gate
with bold Black Forest cake, plum preserves and licorice
scents followed by Chinese five spice and potpourri
nuances with a waft of fallen leaves. Full-bodied, the palate
has great richness and depth with firm, velvety tannins and
just enough freshness, finishing long and savory.
