Owned by the Bignon-Cordier family since 1999, the Château Sénéjac vineyard covers 150 hectares, within which 41 hectares of vines are cultivated. In addition to its exceptional Médoc terroir, Château Sénéjac has a wide range of agricultural land. All of these lands constitute a reserve of biodiversity of great wealth that is continually maintained, improved and above all preserved.
The style of Château Sénéjac is intimately linked to its terroir, on the lands of Haut-Médoc. These wines are of great aromatic finesse. The tannins are silky and melted. The wines can be drunk young when charm and fruit dominate. They are also excellent when they age and present more evolved notes with incomparable aromas.
The 2014 Senejac has a withdrawn but well defined bouquet with more undergrowth aromas than many of its peers, unreservedly classic in style (and there is nothing wrong with that). The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe blackberry and boysenberry on the entry, a slight tinniness on the back palate with a very tightly wound finish. This clearly needs 4-5 years in bottle but it has the matière to repay those with patience. Tasted September 2016. [90 Points, Neal Martin– October 2016 – robertparker.com]
