OUT OF STOCK

Sénéjac simply shouts quality as it is now run by Alfred Tesseron of the famed Château Pontet Canet. A bouquet of red and black fruits, a touch of smoke and a faint whiff of cigar box. The palate is medium-bodied with silky tannins. Very focused and seductive towards the rounded, plum finish. Great harmony and focus. This is certainly beginning to open, although it needs serious decanting.

Producer

Located in the far south of the Haut-Médoc region of Bordeaux lies Château Sénéjac. In the past this Cru Bourgeois estate was best known for its production white wines, however today the vineyards are planted with 100% classic red Bordeaux varietals - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
The production is approximately 16,000 cases are produced per year  and the wine is matured in 25% new oak barrels for around 18 months (depending on the vintage).  
Alfred Tesseron of the famous Pauillac property Château Pontet Canet has brought his knowledge and expertise to Sénéjac, introducing many of the same biodynamic farming methods.  The grapes are hand-picked and the vinification process is under the control of Alfred and his team to create a wine with a sense of pedigree and opulence and with great balance.

Region

Bordeaux is not only the most famous wine producing region in France but in the world, with the most prestigious châteaux and wines in the industry. Its history dates back to the Roman times and today is the largest producing region of fine wines. Vineyards in Bordeaux are known by châteaux and therefore the name of each individual château is an important brand. 

Many top wines are sold ‘En Primeur’ meaning that they are sold in the barrel prior to bottling. Almost 90% of the wine produced in Bordeaux is red (called ‘Claret’ in the UK) from over 8,500 producers. The main reason for the success of the wine production in Bordeaux is the perfect combination of climate, with long hours of sunshine ideal for ripening the grapes and well-draining gravel soil. Appellations are an important part of the Bordeaux culture and the region has 54 appellations recognized by the AOC, the Appellation d’Origine Controlle.
