The 2015 Fugue de Nenin is a lovely second wine. Sweet floral notes, raspberry and strawberry are pushed forward in an attractive, gracious wine that shows the more delicate, feminine side of Pomerol. It should drink nicely upon release. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

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 deuxième vin, 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. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2028

90% Merlot. And 4% press wine included. Mid crimson. Quite a lively nose that jumps out of the glass. Smooth, though only just enough freshness. Ripe but not super-sweet. Rather astringent tannins on the end. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2020-2028

Two thirds of the crop went into the second wine in 2015 and very stylish it is too. Aromatic red and black fruits, polished tannins and deftly handled 20% new oak integration. The subtle touch of consultant Eric Boissenot is apparent here. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2021-2027
