Ch. Sénéjac is one of the better known Crus Bourgeois of the Haut-Médoc, located near to the vineyards of Margaux, just outside Parempuyre in the far south of the Haut-Médoc region. Sénéjac is a historic estate of 150 hectares, of which only 38 are under vine, and even in the middle of the 19th century produced 100,000 bottles, not far short of its modern-day total.. It s reputation for making high quality wine blossomed in the 1980s and then in 1999 it entered a new era when it was bought by Lorraine Cordier, whose family also woned the famous St Julien property, Chateau Talbot.
There are 28 hectares of vineyards and the wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (25%) and Cabernet Franc (15%). It is matured in oak barriques (25% new) for 18 months. Recently the estate has changed hands and is now owned by Monsieur Rutsman.
Make a bid
Since 2009 the wines from this popular Cru Bourgeois have been on a rather serious roll. Now being made with technical advice from the team at Ch. Pontet-Canet, wines that were once merely worthy, with a rustic sort of charm, now show real flair and energy. Traditionally deep, dark and brooding, the 2012 is lighter on its feet, but still nicely rounded and clearly very concentrated. Everything is nicely integrated, and although still young, the wine is sufficiently well balanced as to be drinkable now. If you chose to keep it for a year or two, your patience will not go unrewarded. Philip Moulin - Fine Wine Buyer

Well this little beauty took us all by surprise. Usually Haut-Médoc notes tend to be as exciting as a Ford Mondeo, but this fresh and racy number is more like a Mercedes S-Class! It has an expressive nose of currants and cassis, with lift and life to it. The palate offers flesh and roundness that so many lesser growths lacked this vintage. The sweet tannins play perfect partner to the freshness and crunch of the acid – this really is a charmer and could be a value buy. Hong Kong Fine Wine Team
This wine is very rich on the nose, almost minty from the Cabernet Sauvignon, yet with a touch of red cherries. It has very good intensity on the nose and through the mid-palate, making this a very well-balanced and extremely good value wine. This is another tour de force from the Pontet-Canet winemaking team. (60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) (Max Lalondrelle, BBR Bordeaux Wine Buyer)
