2004 Nenin, Pomerol

SKU #1031445 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 From the Pomerol estate under the same ownership as Léoville-las-Cases in Saint-Julien. A big wine, with generous, opulent fruit. Bitter chocolate as well as ripe black skins and big firm fruits and tannins. To finish, there is a lift of freshness, but this is more about sweet fruits.  (6/2007)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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. (RP)  (6/2007)

K&L Notes

According to Stephen Tanzer: "(75% merlot and 25% cabernet franc, 13.5% alcohol) Bright red-ruby. Wonderfully sweet aromas of raspberry, coffee and smoke. Supple and sweet in the mouth, with lively flavors of crunchy dark berries and fruity chocolate. Finishes with firm but sweet tannins. This is technically very low in acidity but shows no shortage of vivacity." (Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 05) 89 points Robert Parker: "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." (06/07) K&L's notes - 74.5% Merlot and 25.5% Cabernet Franc. Under the outstanding leadership of Jean Hubert Delon (Las Cases), this property is getting better and better. Bready nose--good flavors but hard for me to taste at this time.

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
