2012 Cru Bourgeois Supérieur Haut Médoc
|Classification||Cru Bourgeois Supérieur|
Good and harmonious. Not massive, but what it has is pretty sweetness and delicacy of flavours. Lovely. Long and harmonious. From 2016. Rating: 89-89 L&S (Apr 2013)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Sweet ripe black fruits give a fleshy richness on the nose and fill out the palate. Cassis is underpinned by black plum the layers of fruit giving complexity with the underlying chocolate enriching the back palate and finish. 2017-27 Rating: 87-90 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk (Dec 2013)
The 2012 Sénéjac has a modest blackberry and raspberry leaf nose with fine definition if not quite the vigour of its peers. The palate is soft and supple on the entry with herbaceous, slightly dusty red fruit and a graphite-tinged finish that appeared more focused in the second bottle tasted at a négociant. Fine.

So far south in the Haut-Médoc that it exists in splendid isolation, without vineyard neighbours, in the tiny settlement of Le Pian Médoc, is Château Sénéjac. The usual Bordelais long complicated history is crowned by the purchase of Sénéjac in 1999 by Lorraine Cordier, owner of Château Talbot. Since Lorraine’s death, Sénéjac has been managed by her sister Nancy Bignon Cordier with operations overseen by Alfred Tesseron and his team from Château Pontet Canet. There are 39ha of vineyard, in a single block, planted with 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, with an average age of 35 years. The wines of Château Sénéjac offer splendid value and relatively early appeal.
