Country - France

Region - Bordeaux

Grape Varieties - Merlot 63%, Cabernet Sauvignon 37%

Alcohol by volume - 13%

Bottle - 75cl

Producer - Château Sénéjac

Tasting notes - Very deep colour with an expressive nose of black fruits and spices. Sénéjac is powerful and intense, while remaining smooth, thanks to the finesse of its tannins. A charming and distinguished wine that can be drunk young, when its fruity aromas are most enjoyable, or, even better, after ageing to discover the elegance and the richness of its terroir.

Chateau Senejac Comte de Senejac Haut Medoc 2015

A medium bodied Bordeaux, smooth and approachable.
A very appealing style.
Producer Note
Château Sénéjac is one of the most beautiful buildings in the whole region and has a
long and fascinating history dating back more than five centuries. The first vines were
planted by Nicolas de Blois, the first known owner of the estate in the sixteenth century.
A number of nobles and gentry succeeded de Blois as head of the property but it was
not until Lorraine Cordier, the owner of Château Talbot, purchased the estate that new
impetus was given to the vineyards. Cordier aimed to establish the estate as one of the
best in the Médoc crus. Following her death in 2011, the property was taken over by
her sister Nancy Bignon-Cordier.
Vintage
Generous flowering took place followed by a hot, dry early summer. August was slightly
cooler and damper, followed by good weather in September enabling the grapes to
reach full maturity. Generally the harvest took place earlier than the previous year. 2015
has been cited as a great modern Bordeaux vintage of excellent quality.
Vineyard
The vines have an average age of 35 years are grown in deep gravel soils. Yielding 45
hectolitres per hectare the vines are meticulously cultivated, with canopy thinning and
green harvesting to encourage the optimal amount of sunlight and concentration in
the berries. The grapes are harvested in several triages to ensure they are harvested at
the optimal maturity level.
Winemaking
The grapes underwent a precise manual sorting to ensure only the healthy and perfect
berries were vinified before being destemmed and crushed. Fermentation took place in
temperature controlled stainless steel vats with regular pumping over to gently extract
colour, flavour and fine tannins. The wine went through malolactic conversion, resulting
in a softer mouthfeel followed by ageing in French oak barrels for eight to 10 months.
Tasting Note
Intense aromas of plums and strawberry are complemented by hints of liquorice.
Beautifully balanced with silky tannins and roasted notes on the finish.
