A concentrated and delicious red wine from the Haut-Medoc
Chateau Senejac is a red wine from the Haut-Medoc appellation. The vines are, on average, 35 years old covering 40 hectares of gravel-based soil. The wine is aged for 12-15 months, depending on the vintage (30% are new). The 2016 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (51%), Merlot (36%), Cabernet Franc (9%) and Petit Verdot (4%).
Chateau Senejac 2016 reveals a deep, dense purple color. Its aromas are quite expressive: black cherries and blackberries. Hints of red fruits and toasted vanilla present themselves as well. In the mouth, the texture is precise thanks to the beautiful, silky tannins. The wine is powerfully elegant, and has a magnificent resting finish. This is undoubtedly one of the best vintages produced by the property. Concentrated and delicious, it has excellent aging potential.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Sénéjac has an attractive bouquet with floral-tinged red and black fruitùstrawberry pastilles and just a touch of bay leaf, nicely defined and gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, well-judged acidity, very harmonious with assiduous use of new oak. This is a very stylish Haut-Médoc, one of the best that I have tasted in many years. This comes highly recommended.
