CH. NENIN Pomerol 2012 is a solid, dark and dense wine. As notes of cassis and blackberry notes overwhelm you, the wine shows a medium-bodied on the palate with fine grain tannin. The wine is well-balanced despite not having enormous depth towards the finish. With powerful and ripe fruit dominating the opulent structure, the wine is for aging. Drink from 2020, but the wine will be developing for more years after that.
A source of exceptionally sensual and glamorous red wines, Pomerol is actually a rather small appellation in an unassuming countryside. It sits on a plateau immediately northeast of the city of Libourne on the right bank of the Dordogne River. Pomerol and St-Émilion are the stars of what is referred to as Right Bank Bordeaux. While Pomerol has no official classification system, its best wines are some of the world’s most sought after.
The best Pomerol wines will be intensely hued, with qualities of fresh wild berries, dried fig or concentrated black plum preserves. Aromas may be of forest floor, sifted cocoa powder, anise, exotic spice or toasted sugar and will have a silky, smooth but intense texture.
