The 39 hectares of the property were harvested in optimal conditions between the 21st of September until the 8th of October. This Sénéjac 2015 is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. The first notes seem shy but swirling brings out the strong expressions of fresh cedar and aromas of juicy black fruits giving a fresh nose to this Haut-Médoc. The first impression on the palate is straight, then pulpy with strong, well extracted and mature tannins. This wine is opulent and charismatic.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Senejac is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. It has a pure, black cherry, pastille-like bouquet with touches of melted tar and licorice. The palate is well balanced with dry, rather masculine tannin on the entry, a good line of acidity, fresh and nicely proportioned with cedar and tobacco furnishing the long finish. This is a well-crafted, capable Sénéjac that deserves 5-6 years in bottle, and I expect it to land at the top of my banded score.
