Château Sénejac, Haut Médoc, Bordeaux 2013
Château Sénéjac sits at the southerly end of the Médoc, in the commune of Le Pian Médoc, surrounded by woodland, pasture and even a golf course.
The property’s history can be traced back over 400 years but it was bought by Lorraine Cordier, owner of Château Talbot in Saint-Julien, in 1999. Quality increased steadily and as a result it has become very much a property to watch in our view. Sadly Lorraine’s died in 2011 and since then Sénéjac has been managed by her sister Nancy Bignon Cordier with operations overseen by Alfred Tesseron and his team from the revitalized Château Pontet Canet.
Medium-purple hue. Charming nose with rich black currants and cherries. Enhanced on the palate with more cassis, and a balanced juicy acidity that flows through onto a slightly creamy, autumn berry finish with round tannins.
Grapes: 48% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot, 11% cabernet franc, and 4% petit verdot.
