This structured Pomerol reveals classic sweet cherry and kirsch liqueur-like notes intermixed with hints of minerals and flowers. Lovely ripeness, medium body, and a restrained but noble style suggest it will drink well for 10-15 years. Also tasted: 2004 Fugue de Nenin (86)
|Score: 89||Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (171), June 2007|
A blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, Nenin’s 2004 exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as a structured, crisp style with noticeable acidity, and good, but uninspiring levels of concentration and complexity. Attractive in a low-brow manner, it should last for 10-12 years.
|Score: 85/86||Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (165), June 2006|
Very attractive aromas of blackberries and tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. Well done. Long. Builds on the palate.
