Château Nenin Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 1998
"The finest Nenin in many decades, the dense ruby/purple-colored 1998 exhibits aromas of coffee, melted caramel, vanilla, plums, and black cherry jam. It is full-bodied, with an unctuous texture, superb purity, and a silky, seamless finish. There is abundant tannin submerged beneath the wine's fatness and richness." WA 4/01.
Superb buy, one of the best of the pre-revamp Nenin's. The vinyard was erratic for the last 30 years pre-buyout, but this was a winner. Dark, unctious, mysterious depth and complexity normally only seen in the 300+ quid a bottle set.
