Fugue de Nénin was created and first sold in 1997. Fugue comes from sandy-clay soils found in the eastern part of the Château's vineyards, as well as from the young vines planted on the great plateau terroirs. This second wine of Château Néninis a typical example of the charm of Pomerol. Fugue is a reference to music, it means a repetition of the main theme. This name makes sense when you taste the wine. Fugue complements the tonalities of its older sibling extremely well while providing its own attractive and entertaining rendition. The wines are smooth and silky and can be enjoyed earlier than those of the Grand Vin. Grape Blend: 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc.
Very fine purity on the nose here, especially considering that this is a deuxième vin, a mixture of red and black fruit, a touch of cedar from the Cabernet Franc emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with light and crisp tannin, tensile in the mouth with charcoal-tinged black fruit that tapers slightly towards the finish.
