Chateau Senejac 2018
The vineyard stretches its Sénéjac ridges on a plateau overlooking the town of Pian in Haut 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.
The nose is fruity and offers freshness as well as a fine concentration. It reveals notes of blackberry, ripe raspberry and small notes of crushed cassis associated with small touches of liquorice, Tonka bean, as well as very discreet hints of violet and a subtle hint of cardamom. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, precise and offers good definition, juiciness, a fine straightness, freshness, a good structure, and a lovely richness. In mouth, Sénéjac presents a lot of fullness and intensity while remaining suave and civilized thanks to the smoothness of its tannins. The wine of Sénéjac is a charming and distinguished wine to drink young for its fullness.
