Dense and rich second wine of Nenin with dark berries, chocolate and hazelnuts. Full body, round and chewy tannins, yet polished and finished. Needs two or three years to soften, at least. Try after 2023.

This elegant, medium-bodied, impressively balanced 2016 has a fleshy, forward style as well as classic damp earth, lead pencil, cedar, and tobacco aromas and flavors. It’s a delicious, easy-drinking wine that’s going to deliver ample pleasure over the coming decade.

Medium to full-bodied, plush and packed with black fruit and minty layers, it finishes long.
