The second wine of Château Nénin, the Fugue de Nénin expresses all of the grandeur of a great Pomerol red wine, full of elegance and delicacy.

A vintage of strong climatic contrasts, 2018 will be remembered in Bordeaux for its wet winter, followed by a mild and rainy spring. From July onwards, the summer brought radiant sunshine that lasted until the date of the harvest. The grape harvest began on September 13th and ended on October 10th, taking place under the best possible climatic and health conditions, with the fruit having reached the perfect stage of ripeness.

Blending Merlot (88%) and Cabernet Franc, the Château Nénin’s Fugue de Nénin 2018 offers a magnificent Pomerol expression. The vintage unveils a beautiful dress with a rich purple colour, and shimmering purple reflections. The aromatic bouquet seduces with its intense fruity expression, literally leaping from the glass to reveal aromas of black cherry, blackcurrant jam and plum, with hints of chocolate. Fresh cedar notes, delicate floral fragrances (iris) and mineral graphite notes accentuate a bouquet so characteristic of Pomerol. On the palate, the Fugue de Nénin 2018 packs a delicious tannic structure, evolving a generous and juicy texture, and a fresh finish with beautiful minty notes. A magnificent Pomerol from Château Nénin in a great vintage for Bordeaux.

WINE ADVOCATE-PARKER :

The 2018 Fugue de Nenin is composed of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, with 14.4% alcohol. Grapes were harvested September 13 to October 12, with yields of 33.8 hectoliter per hectare. The wine is to be aged in barriques, 25% new–the finished blend was put into barrels last December. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with gregarious black cherries, redcurrant jelly and warm plums scents with nuances of dark chocolate, cloves and anise. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers lovely rounded tannins and a lively line of freshness supporting the crunchy red and black fruits, finishing with an herbal lift.
