Pomerol wines like Fugue de Nenin are common. It’s a great bottle, especially given it’s the second wine from the Château, made up of 82% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc. Château Nénin’s second wine is owned by Domaines Delon, which also owns Léoville Las Cases, Clos du Marquis and Potensac in the Pomerol appellation..
What you get in this bottle are notes of chocolate, dark cherry, plums, and spice abound in this sumptuous red, which benefits from the Merlot grape’s gentle tannins and grace in the blend. Allow the wine to breathe before tasting it to allow the aromas to fully develop.
In 1997, Fugue de Nénin was initially marketed. From the eastern portion of the Château’s vineyards, sandy-clay soil and young vines contribute to Fugue. The charm of Pomerol may be seen in this second wine, which is a typical illustration of its beauty. Musician’s term “fugue” is used to describe a recurrence of the primary subject. Fugue matches the older sibling’s tonalities quite well, while delivering its own appealing and engaging rendering. This moniker makes sense when you taste the wine. As opposed to the Grand Vin, these wines are silky and velvety, and they may be savored early.
