The 39 hectares of the property were harvested in optimal conditions between the 21st of September until the 8th of October. This Sénéjac 2015 is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. The first notes seem shy but swirling brings out the strong expressions of fresh cedar and aromas of juicy black fruits giving a fresh nose to this Haut-Médoc. The first impression on the palate is straight, then pulpy with strong, well extracted and mature tannins. This wine is opulent and charismatic.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
One of our readers wrote to me and requested that I take another look at the 2015 Senejac. I'm always happy to relook at a wine, particularly if it is a wine that dramatically underperformed or overperformed in a tasting compared to its recent track record. So I purchased this bottle from a local, reputable merchant. In fact, it did appear to show significantly better than when I originally tasted it during a merchant tasting in Bordeaux, delivering a good intensity of black and red plum notes with hints of stewed tea, menthol and cassis plus an earthy undercurrent of underbrush and fungi. Medium-bodied, the palate offers plenty of juicy fruit with a chewy frame and a refreshing lift to the finish, making for a great everyday quaffing red!
