ocated north of the village of Catusseau, Château Nénin was acquired by Jean-Hubert Delon in 1997. He bought it from his Despujols cousins who had owned it since 1847. Very large investments were made upon its acquisition to upgrade the vineyard and facilities. . Fugue de Nénin, the property's second wine, was created and marketed in 1997. It comes from vines planted in the eastern half of the Château Nénin vineyard as well as young vines planted on the great terroirs of the plateau. This second wine is the typical expression of the charm of Pomerol.
Silky, charming and tasty, with a nose of black fruits. It presents a great freshness in the mouth with coated tannins. The finish is long and fruity.
