Reviews for 2005 Nenin Bordeaux Blend

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2008
Very grapey on the nose with mineral tarragon and fresh flowers. Full-bodied with very well-integrated tannins and a light vanilla berry and milk chocolate aftertaste. Subtle and balanced. The best Nenin in years. Best... Very grapey on the nose with mineral tarragon and fresh flowers.

The Châtean Nénin 2005 is flamboyant and vivacious on the nose with red cherries, pomegranate, leather and a light marine influence. This let's it all hang out there.

This let's it all hang out there. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, quite animally in style, a little feral with an easy-going, slightly savoury finish. This is just beginning to drink now and should give 15 or 20 years of pleasure.

Not surprisingly given the ownership by the Delon family (who also own Las Cases) Nenin always has a Medoc structure super-imposed on the ripe Merlot (75% of the blend with the balance Cabernet Franc). The strong 2005 exhibits notes of sweet black cherries licorice and caramel in its medium to full-bodied structured personality. It requires 5-7 years of cellaring and should keep for two decades or more.
