JS 93
James Suckling
A firm, chewy red with blackberry and light coffee character. Medium to full body. Solid structure.
Barrel Sample: 92-93
D 91
Decanter
Extremely juicy cassis and enticing hedgerow here, this is bright, perky, less flesh on the bones than 2018 but with plenty of character. It settles in the glass, and you feel the build up of tannins. Will be interesting to taste in bottle, there is real potential here.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Vinified by Château Talbot's Jean-Michel Laporte, the 2019 Sénéjac delivers aromas of smoky blackberries, pencil shavings and loamy soil, followed by a medium to full-bodied, lively and charming palate framed by fine tannins and concluding with a saline, mouthwatering finish. It's a fine effort that comes recommended. Best After 2021

Chateau Senejac Winery Image
A former Baronial home, the first known owner of Chateau Senejac was in the sixteenth century, a rider, Nicolas de Blois, who married Jeanne Fleix, lady Blanquefort. No doubt does one he planted a vineyard from this century. In the seventeenth century, a great hunter, Marshal d'Ornano, Governor of Guyenne, took possession of the field. in mid-nineteenth century, Senejac vinified the equivalent of 100 000 bottles, much less today. Nobles and gentry, then succeeded at the head of the property that was bought in 1860 by the Earl of Guigne. New impetus to raise the vineyard up to the best Medoc crus was given since its acquisition in 1999 by Lorraine Cordier, also owner of Chateau Talbot, Grand Cru Classe Saint Julien. Following the death of Lorraine Cordier in 2011, the property was taken over by his sister Nancy Bignon Cordier.

The vineyard stretches its Sénéjac ridges on a plateau overlooking the town of Pian. The 37 hectares of vines in one piece are planted on gravelly soils typically deep Médoc.

The vines are composed of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. In 1983, the entire vineyard was drained and part of the priests fishponds to allow a better flow of surface waters. The vineyards are maintained in the traditional manner and are subject to the most attentive care.

While it claims the same basic landscape as the Medoc—only every so slightly elevated above river level—the Haut Medoc is home to all of the magnificent chateaux of the Left Bank of Bordeaux, creating no lack of beautiful sites to see.

These chateaux, residing over the classed-growth cru in the villages of Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, St-Julien, Pauillac and St. Estephe are within the Haut Medoc appellation. Though within the confines of these villages, any classed-growth chateaux will most certainly claim village or cru status on their wine labels.

Interestingly, some classed-growth cru of the Haut Medoc fall outside of these more famous villages and can certainly be a source of some of the best values in Bordeaux. Deep in color, and concentrated in ripe fruit and tannins, these wines (typically Cabernet Sauvignon-based) often prove the same aging potential of the village classed-growths. Among these, the highest ranked chateaux are Chateau La Lagune and Chateau Cantemerle.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
