Marks and reviews
The finesse and smoothness of an Haut-Médoc wine
The first vines of Château Sénéjac were planted in the 16th century. This estate has belonged to the Bignon-Cordier family since 1999 and is a very important name in the Haut-Médoc appellation.
A truly green setting for biodiversity, Château Sénéjac is an Haut-Médoc wine from a 37.2 hectare vineyard. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted on Pyrenean gravel soils deposited during the Quaternary period on the clay-gravel hillside of Pian-Médoc. These gravelly soils ensure effective drainage of the soil and help to regulate the water stress suffered by the vines in the event of a lack of water reserves.
Winemaking and ageing
Manual and mechanical harvesting, with sorting afterwards. Vinification in stainless steel vats. The wine was aged for 15 months in barrels, 30% of which were new.
This Château Sénéjac 2022 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (47%), Merlot (34%), Cabernet Franc (13%) and Petit Verdot (6%).
