Tasting Notes: Chateau Senejac 2009 offers a beautiful red colour with brilliant reflections. The first nose is precise, with cherry notes. It is prolonged by spicy notes, sign of the presence of Petit Verdot. The attack in mouth is fresh, balanced and smooth. The tannins are silky and distinguished. On the palate, the fruits are ripe and fleshy. The finish is long, precise, with a beautiful aromatic intensity.
The elegant packaging is matched by the wine, which shows ripe, sweet blackberry and blackcurrant fruit with a nice fresh quality and a hint of some meaty savouriness lurking in the background. Ripe, dense, structured and quite serious, and opens out nicely with air. Proper Bordeaux. 91/100
This is a major sleeper of the vintage and the finest Senejac I have tasted. The team from Pontet Canet, who have done such a phenomenal job at that estate, were in charge of making this Senejac, and the result, not surprisingly, is a sensational wine that consumers need to buy by the case. Dense purple, with notes of creme de cassis, incense, licorice and forest floor, this wine is delicious and full-bodied, with sweet tannins, low acidity, copious fruit and exceptional concentration. Everything is in balance, and the wine is capable of lasting 10 or more years
