Wine Advocate

"92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""The 2015 Nenin is a blend of 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Franc, cropped at 37 hl/ha between 17 September and 5 October over nine picking days. The alcohol arrives at 14.3%. Matured in 35% new oak, it sports a precise and elegant bouquet. This is a more nuanced Nenin compared to recent vintages whereby the Merlot is more expressive than the Cabernet Franc at present. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin. This is very well balanced, a more sophisticated Nenin than in recent years, due to Jean-Hubert Delon's decision to deselect some worthy parcels into the deuxième vin. There is an attractive sappiness towards the finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. I would just like to see that Cabernet Franc finding its voice by the time this 2015 is in bottle, but this Nenin has very good potential. One to watch."" 4/16"

Neil Martin

93 Points, Neil Martin: "The 2015 Nenin has a clean and fresh redcurrant and cranberry-scented bouquet with touches of black truffle and cold stone. I would just like a little more intensity here but it may well have closed down since bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very harmonious and taut, quite understated when compared to the Nenins of a few years ago, segueing into a white pepper-tinged finish. Very fine. Anticipated maturity: 2021 - 2042."

Antonio Galloni

94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2015 Nénin was one of the most pleasant surprises of my tastings of bottled 2015s, as the wine has really come together nicely since I tasted it from barrel. Deep, pliant and wonderfully fleshy, the 2015 has so much to offer. Above all else, it is flat out delicious. Soft contours add to the wine's considerable near and medium-term appeal." 2/18
