The estate On the eve of the 1997 harvest, Jean-Hubert Delon purchased Château Nénin, which had belonged to his cousins, the Despujol family, since 1847. A major restructuring was immediately undertaken. The pruning and trellising methods were reviewed, the land was drained, the vines were replanted or uprooted, and the equipment modernized. The ageing and storage cellars were extended and completely re-fitted, and air conditioning was added. A new vat room, furnished with state-of-the-art equipment, was built thereby completing the total transformation of the property. According to the Delon family, Château Nénin is the epitome of a great Pomerol "vin de garde" (wine for laying down). It combines power and elegance, complexity and balance, purity and refi nement. The gradual increase of Cabernet Franc within the vineyards gives the wine tautness, distinction and freshness. To really appreciate the Grand Vin's ageing ability, you may need to be patient. Like all great Pomerol vins de garde, Château Nénin blossoms over time. The 2021 vintage This 2021 vintage will remain uniquely complex. Both early and late. Indeed, although the mildness and humidity of the winter imposed an early, yet homogeneous budburst, this advance was lost during the growing season. The total investment of the teams was more than ever essential to limit the impact of various hazards and risks: once the impact of frost contained, the vineyard was then be preserved until the end of the summer, for a slow but complete and very qualitative phenolic maturation. The gravelly soil, especially on the plateau, played its role perfectly, forcing the vines to refine the suave maturity of the Merlots and the intrinsic elegance of the Cabernet Franc.
