2013 Haut-Medoc from Bordeaux.
The Chateau Senejac vineyard stretches on a plateau that dominates the town of Le Pian. The 2013 vintage is 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.
The 2013 Haut-Medoc Chateau Senejac displays a garnet colour and offers an expressive and complex bouquet. Cherry and woodland notes mix with blended and scrumptious spicy wood hints. The palate reveals a fleshy and supple texture. The wine is carried by a fresh balance. Some toasted notes complete the aromatic range. The structure is elegant and silky, followed by richly flavoured tannins.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
This is another sleeper from the back waters of Bordeaux, where some surprisingly good wines can be made, and consumers need to be aware of them. This property has been on a nice qualitative roll for a while, and this well-made 2013 exhibits saturated color and sweet blackcurrant and black cherry fruit with hints of cedar wood and incense. The wine is round, juicy and surprisingly pure and delicious. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
