The 2015 Nenin is 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Franc. Deep, pliant and expressive, the 2015 captures all of the sensuality of the year in its dark red cherry, plum, mocha, spice and leather nuances. Succulent and ripe, yet very much medium in body, the 2015 should drink well upon release. The 2015 is not especially complex or structured, but it is a delicious wine to enjoy for its bounty of fruit and impeccable overall balance. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Nenin is a blend of 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Franc, cropped at 37 hl/ha between 17 September and 5 October over nine picking days. The alcohol arrives at 14.3%. Matured in 35% new oak, it sports a precise and elegant bouquet. This is a more nuanced Nenin compared to recent vintages whereby the Merlot is more expressive than the Cabernet Franc at present. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin. This is very well balanced, a more sophisticated Nenin than in recent years, due to Jean-Hubert Delon's decision to deselect some worthy parcels into the deuxième vin. There is an attractive sappiness towards the finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. I would just like to see that Cabernet Franc finding its voice by the time this 2015 is in bottle, but this Nenin has very good potential. One to watch.

Most structured and powerful Nenin I have tasted in 30 years. Full body incredible brightness and beauty. Loads of blackberry and mineral character. Extremely long and intense. Creamy texture goes on for minutes. 33% Cabernet Franc and 63% Merlot Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Packed with fresh plum, black licorice and boysenberry coulis flavors, all inlaid with enticing spice notes. Offers a pure finish, leaning a bit toward stony cut rather than the velvety side. A very solid effort. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

New winemaker for the last two years. Lots of replanting. Nine days of picking spread over three weeks (17 September - 5 October). Used vertical and pneumatic press for different portions. Eric Boissenot advises on how to treat each lot. 8% of press wine in this final blend. 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Franc. Very dark and precise-looking - quite different from the Fugue. Rich but tense. Lots of heady ripeness but some structure too. I'm sure the press wine is doing a great job. Very luscious. Attention-grabbing without being at all exaggerated. 14.3%.

A third of the crop and probably the most precise wine yet from this Léoville-Las Cases-owned property. Constructed in the house style with fine-grained tannins and impressive length and freshness. Less opulence than previous years but very pure. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2023-2040

Right up there with the best vintages at this château since it was acquired by the Delon family in 1997, this is a structured, intense, but vivacious Pomerol showing fine-grained tannins and the grassy freshness of good Cabernet Franc. The oak will integrate over the next couple of years. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2032
