Chateau Nenin - Pomerol

The Château Nenin is a 32-hectare wine estate in the Pomerol appellation. The annual production is around 50 000 bottles.

What are the specificities of Château Nenin?

The château Nenin was owned by the Despujol family since 1840. In 1997, the new owners, the Delon family, bought the property. They had experience in managing a château since they already had the Château Leoville Las Cases located in the Saint-Julien appellation and the Château Potensac located in the Haut Médoc.

In 2004, the Château Nenin has been renovated. It took a few years before the Delon family started the march towards high quality for Château Nenin. But starting with the 2015 vintage, everything changed. Yields were reduced, the grapes gained in maturity and the wines quickly started to improve, as shown by the tasting ratings for the vintage. A perpetual improvement that predicts a very bright future for the Château.

The vineyard enjoys a terroir of gravel, clay and sand with a little iron in the soil, giving birth to a wine made from 3 grape varieties:

  • Merlot 78%
  • Cabernet Franc 21%
  • Cabernet Sauvignon 1%

Vinification at Château Nenin in Pomerol is traditional. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats ranging in size from 70 hectolitres to 160 hectolitres. On average, the Château Nenin is aged in 30% new oak barrels or less for an average of 18 months, depending on the vintage.

In order to best express its terroir, the estate also produces a second wine "La Fugue de Nenin".
