Second wine of Château Nénin, Fugue is a reference to music, meaning a repetition of the main theme. Grapes are sourced from the sandy-clay soils and the young vines of the estate. Smooth and silky, this is a typical example of what Pomerol can offer.
“The second wine of Château Nenin wears its high alcohol easily. It is balanced, showing its dark tannins and juicy Merlot fruitiness in equal measure. It’s by no means ready to drink, so age at least until 2018.” – 88pts, The Wine Magazine, January 2015.
French still red wine from Pomerol Bordeaux France, made with Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
