With 12% alcohol, and scoring 16+ points on the Dionysian scale, the 1970 Chateau Nenin Pomerol is mostly Merlot with some Cabernet Franc added.

It cost under $20 back then and I can not afford them today. It reflected some blueberry aromas with oak, leather, some cedar notes too. It held together for an hour after decanting and was smooth as silk.

Grill meat, and a rice-cheese dish laced with bacon fat helped the wine show its best.

Pomerol can make non-Merlot drinkers change their minds. This was my last of these and nearly the last of all my 51 year-old wines. In Vino Veritas.
