Château Sénéjac, Haut-Médoc 2015
This is the best mature Château Senejac I have tasted for a very long time. Cabernet sauvignon makes up just over half of the blend and merlot one-third, with the balance split between cabernet franc and petit verdot. It displays classic Médoc characters with a perfumed, smoky nose, and plenty of savoury black-fruit flavours and silky tannins on the palate. Altogether a very complete wine and great value for money.
Château Senejac is one of the most famous Cru Bourgeois estates in the Haut-Médoc much loved among British claret drinkers. It is located on the border of the Margaux appellation and Alfred Tesseron and his team (Château Pontet Canet) are in charge of the winemaking. Alfred has transformed the viticulture and vinification processes, as a result, this is very much an estate on the up and is a château to watch over the coming years.
