2018 Chateau Senejac Haut-Medoc
Winemaker Notes: The wines of Sénéjac are characterized by a deep color almost black in their young years. The very expressive nose exhales scents of black fruits and spices. In mouth, Sénéjac presents a lot of fullness and intensity while remaining suave and civilized thanks to the smoothness of its tannins. The wine of Sénéjac is a charming and distinguished wine to drink young for its fullness and its fruit or better still to let age slowly to find the race of its soil.
James Suckling - "Blackcurrant, blackberry, herbal and earthy undertones. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins and structure. Savory and layered on the palate. Rich finish. Chewy. Try after 2024."
Vinous - "The 2018 Sénéjac has an attractive bouquet of blackberry and raspberry fruits, touches of graphite and pressed flowers. I admire the precision of this Haut-Médoc. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, well-judged new oak (25%) and a touch of dark chocolate toward the finish. This has real panache and class and comes highly recommended. 91-93pts"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Senejac is deep garnet-purple colored with a nose of warm berries, earth, herbs and tobacco plus floral notions. The palate is full-bodied and rich with fine-grained tannins, nice freshness and good length. Barrel Sample: 90-92"
Decanter - "A violet-edged, austere style. You can feel a real pull inwards and upwards through the palate that emphasises redcurrant rather than raspberry fruits. It has relatively chewy tannins on the finish. An enjoyable wine that should age. 38hl/ha yield in 2018. Ageing in 30% new oak. 5% Petit Verdot completes the blend. Owned by Famille Bignon-Cordier. Drinking Window 2024 - 2036. Barrel Sample: 90"
