RATINGS

90James Suckling

This is straightforward with blueberry, cherry and spice aromas and flavors...you are going to like the fruit and fine tannins.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Zesty but also very ripe and positive. Lovely round tannins... Tea leaf flavours and both depth and elegance... Bravo.

PRODUCER

Château Senejac

Château Senejac in the southern Medoc has 61 acres of vineyards and has been owned for more than a century by the Cordier family, who also own Château Talbot in Saint-Julien. Today Senejac is run by Nancy Bignon Cordier, and the estate’s wines are complimented wine writers who often rate the wines in the low 90s.

REGION

France, Bordeaux, Haut-Médoc

Bordeaux is the world’s most famous fine-wine producing region. Even non-wine drinkers recognize the names of Bordeaux’s celebrated wines, such as Margaux and Lafite-Rothschild. Located near the Atlantic coast in southwest France, the region takes its name from the seaport city of Bordeaux, a wine trading center with an outstanding site on the Garonne River and easy access to the Atlantic. Like most French wine regions, Bordeaux’s first vineyards were planted by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, then tended by medieval monks. Aristocrats and nobility later owned the region’s best estates and today estates are owned by everyone from non-French business conglomerates to families who have been proprietors for generations. Bordeaux has nearly 280,000 acres of vineyards, 57 appellations and 10,000 wine-producing châteaux. Bordeaux is bifurcated by the Gironde Estuary into so-called “right bank” and “left bank” appellations. Bordeaux’s red wines are blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. It also makes white wines of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. There are several classification systems in Bordeaux. All are attempts to rank the estates based on the historic quality of the wines.
