Fugue de Nénin
2nd Wine of Château Nénin
Château Nénin is quite a large propety by Pomerol standards and sits just south of the village of Catusseau on the south western slopes of the highest plateau in Pomerol. It is thought that the Demay family was responsible for the planting of the initial vines in the 18th century, but the development was later carried out by the Paillet family in the mid 19th century.
The Château has essentially belonged to the same family since 1840. The Delon family acquired Château Nénin in 1997 from their distant cousins – and original owners – the Despujols family. The Delon family also owns Château Léoville Las Cases.
The Delon family brought the Château back to life and its wines are one of the top in Pomerol. The consulting oenologist at Château Nenin is Michel Rolland and these wines tend to be full bodied, fragrant and intense. Chateau Nénin produces a second label wine as well, known as Fugue de Nénin.
