Tasting Notes:

96 points James Suckling

Aromas full of crushed blackberries and blueberries with fresh mushrooms and sandalwood. Full-bodied, very tight and focused with fabulous density of fruit in the center palate and a long, flavorful finish. Shows strength and, at the same time, finesse. Try after 2023.

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Made by the winemaking team of Léoville las Cases in Saint-Julien, this is a densely structured wine, rich in generous fruit while also having balanced acidity. Drink after 2027.

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Deeper colored, with a saturated purple color, the 2016 Château Nenin is 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc brought up in 35% new French oak. It gives up a terrific bouquet of black cherries cassis, graphite, and some gravelly minerality and damp earth notes. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated yet elegant wine that has fine tannins, good acidity, and a great finish. It’s just a classic, beautifully balanced, elegant wine that does everything right.

93 points Wine Spectator

Features a core of dark boysenberry, açai berry and black currant fruit that is direct, pure and polished, carried by solid but integrated tannins through a slightly muscular finish. Offers a lingering licorice snap accent and a nice twang of iron-edged minerality. Well-built. Best from 2023 through 2033.

93 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Blended of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Nenin is deep garnet-purple colored and opens with beautiful Black Forest cake, baked blackberries and blueberry compote scents over a core of Chinese five spice, sandalwood and lilacs. Medium to full-bodied and laden with black fruits and spicy layers, it has a gorgeous velvety frame and just enough freshness, finishing long and vibrant.
