La Fugue de Nénin 2015
The climatic conditions of this year allowed Château Nénin to produce a second wine typical of the charm of Pomerol. Made from a blend mainly composed of Merlot (90%) and Cabernet Franc (10%), this 2015 vintage is round and silky.
With a nice nose of coffee and violet with a touch of red fruits, the 2015 Fugue de Nénin has round and silky tannins making this vintage a wine of pleasure. Fresh, vibrant and a little more concentrated than usual, the 2015 Fugue de Nénin is an elegant and structured wine.

The 2015 Fugue de Nenin is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc cropped at 37 hectoliters per hectare between September 17 and October 5 over nine days. It represents around two-thirds of the total production. There is a very fine purity on the nose here, especially considering that this is a second wine, a mixture of red and black fruit, a touch of cedar from the Cabernet Franc emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with light and crisp tannin, tensile in the mouth with charcoal-tinged black fruit that tapers slightly towards the finish. Give this 2-3 years in bottle and then drink over the next decade.
