Senejac 2013- a revisit




Experience the taste of luxury with Chateau Senejac 2013- a delicious and well-balanced wine perfect for any occasion. Our recent tasting(the 5th one) of this wine on a sunny Saturday afternoon in April 2024 was a delight. With a deep ruby colour and no signs of ageing, it had a fragrant aroma of dry purple and red flowers. The taste was a delightful mix of fresh red, blackcurrants, and dark cherries, with a slightly dusty, meaty, cedary nose and a touch of wood spice. The palate was round, easy, and complete, with a well-balanced flavour that led to a medium finish, reflecting the grapes' characteristics and fruit length.


Chateau Senejac 2013 is a humble CB classification and origin but is less complete than in 2012 and not as intense as in 2009. However, it is slightly fresher and has intensity re-designed by creating certain complexities in blending 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot. It is oak fermented and nurtured in French oak for 15 months, where 33% is new. The grapes are handpicked and sorted, and the vines are 45 years old, providing good economies of scale. This wine is from an excellent vintage with outstanding balance, structure, and phenolic ripeness and is stylistically akin to a mature Arsac Margaux. The best part is that it has been aggressively priced low yet shouts quality for the class. It has received a top score of 89 points Anthocyanes - Yohan Castaing.


Indulge in the luxury of Chateau Senejac 2013, an improved wine for those who appreciate quality and balance. Its delicious taste and excellent value make it the ideal choice for any wine enthusiast.
