Very deep crimson. Very rich, voluptuous nose. Nice freshness and precision on the palate. Very luscious. A lot more successful than many grown- up Pomerol grands vins. Really zesty and plush and lovely. GV

Lots of blackberries, with dark chocolate on the nose. Full body with soft and velvety tannins and a delicious finish. The second wine of Nenin. Better in 2014. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

A blend of 81% Merlot and 19% Cabernet Franc, with 16% pressed wine and coming in at 13.9% alcohol, the Fugue de Nenin has a surprisingly reticent nose with crisp red-berried fruits, a touch of sandalwood and bell pepper, unfurling a little with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, slightly digestif tannins (that remind me of Tertre-Roteboeuf.) Soft and supple on the finish with cooked meats on the aftertaste. Fine. Tasted April 2010.

The Fugue de Nenin is a delicious, soft, finesse-styled Pomerol with elegant mulberry, plum, cherry fruit. Dark ruby, with a hint of spring flowers, it is best drunk over the next decade. Feb 2012, www.robertparker.com
