Château Nenin, Pomerol, Bordeaux 2006
The fruit is fairly open on the first nose, get a touch of rusticity, we are less buttoned up than in some of the more polished wines, letting a little more natural feeling in. Overall this is a pretty expression of black fruits, and the tannins are a little down and dirty. Enjoyable, well balanced, there is alcohol but the fruit has been well extracted to counter it. Ready to go, have it with food, don’t expect the most sophisticated glass you’ll ever see, but thoroughly enjoyable. 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
