Pomerol, Bordeaux Dense ruby/purple, with an attractive, broad, plump nose of plums, raisins, prunes, black cherries, and some dusty earth notes, well-made, medium to full-bodied, with considerable corpulence, flesh, and structure, this is a denser, slightly more tannic wine than the 2001, but big, burly, and showing more finesse than it did prior to bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018. - Rated 89, Robert Parker Chunky red, with lots of heart. Fantastic aromas of chocolate, berry and licorice. Full-bodied, with firm, silky tannins and a long, mouthpuckering finish. A muscular red. Best after 2010. - Rated 92, Wine Spectator
With large formats, to lay a wine down in the proper conditions will allow more time for flavors to integrate themselves thus creating a more complex wine. Always highly recommended.
Half bottles are great for gifts!

Pomerol, Bordeaux Dense ruby/purple-colored with a spicy, sweet nose of jammy cherries, mocha, and a hint of resin, the plump, fleshy 2003 Hosanna reveals light to moderate tannin. It is an impressively constituted blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. This stylish effort is exceptionally successful in such a challenging vintage for Pomerol. Give it 1-3 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 14+ years. - Rated 90, Robert Parker Aromas of blackberry, forest fruits and licorice with just a hint of spice. Full-bodied, with loads of ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Raisins, toasted oak and just a hint of dark chocolate. Best after 2010. –JS - Rated 93, Wine Spectator

Pomerol, Bordeaux This serious property is run by young Jean-Philippe Janoueix. Although the 2003 is not up to the standards of the 2004, 2001, or 2000, this dark ruby/purple-tinged effort offers spicy, herbal characteristics interwoven with notions of new oak, white chocolate, and cherries. Medium-bodied, narrowly constructed, and moderately tannic, it will drink well for 7-8 years. - Rated 88, Robert Parker Soft and balanced with medium body and a delicious plummy, berry aftertaste. Medium tannins. –JS - Rated 85-88, Wine Spectator
Pomerol Bordeaux This wine has turned out exceptionally well, and to my thinking, is the finest Nenin yet made under the Delon administration. A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, the opaque purple-colored 2000 boasts corpulent, thick, juicy, jammy black fruits redolent with flavors of blackberries, cherries, and plums. Hints of licorice, truffles, and subtle wood are present as well. There is also tremendous opulence, thickness, and structure. A comparison with the best 1975s from Pomerol could be made, but the 2000 is sweeter and fleshier. It is a brilliant success for Nenin. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2023. - Rated 93, Robert Parker It shows a serious amount of subtle aromas and flavors of tobacco, cherry and chocolate character. Full-bodied, with velvety, ripe tannins and a long and caressing finish. Yummy already. Hard to hold back. This is one of the best Nenins I have tasted in decades. Best after 2010. 2,500 cases made. –JS - Rated 92, Wine Spectator
