The Demay family are thought to have planted vines here in the mid-18th Century, with the Despujol family founding the estate and running it for over 150 years. This is a huge property by Pomerol standards, with over 32 hectares of vines planted in 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. The terroir is gravel, clay and sand carrying some fairly old vines.
Château Nénin also boasts a regal 19th Century building that would feel right at home on the Left Bank. Winemaking here is traditional, with 30% or less new oak, the wines masculine and structured, with great longevity.
