The 2014 Senejac has a withdrawn but well-defined bouquet with more undergrowth aromas than many of its peers, unreservedly classic in style (and there is nothing wrong with that). The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe blackberry and boysenberry on the entry, a slight tinniness on the back palate with a very tightly wound finish. This clearly needs 4-5 years in bottle but it has the matière to repay those with patience. Tasted September 2016.
Archetype of the good Medoc at an affordable price, Sénéjac rarely disappoints. Located on light and sandy soils in the far south of the Médoc, the estate produces delicious, supple and charming wines. In 1999, a new impetus, to raise the vineyard to the height of the best Médoc crus, was given since its acquisition by Lorraine Cordier, also owner of Château Talbot, Grand Cru Classé of Saint Julien. Following his death, today his sister Nancy Bignon-Cordier and his family are at the head of the estate.
