Chateau Senejac Haut 005 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Alfred Tesseron and his winemaking team from Pontet-Canet began overseeing this property with the 2008 vintage. The result is an obvious up-tick in quality. The 2008 Senejac exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as sweet, sexy aromas of red and black fruits and underbrush, a medium to full-bodied texture, ripe, gentle tannins, and a broad, expansive mouthfeel. This *sleeper of the vintage* should drink nicely for a decade or more." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/32795 for £10.Chateau Senejac [www.chateau-senejac.com] is located near the village of La Pian-Medoc about 10 miles north of the city of Bordeaux and has a history going back centuries..It is a large estate with 39 hectares under vine that was bought by the Cordier family,who also own Chateau Talbot in St Julien, in 1999.The wine consists of 48% cabernet sauvignon,37% merlot,11% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot.,and spends 18 months in oak barrels.I started my bottle at the weekend with a meal of pork chops and I enjoyed it.My overiding impresion is of fresh blackcurrant and licorice style fruit. and mellow tanins.It is a lovely wine and I am not the only one who thinks so.The well known wine critic Robert Parker gave it 85 of his points,it won a silver medal at the 2011 Wine Challenge,and in 2003 the Chateau was made a Cru Bourgeois Superior.[although they have not mentioned this on the bottle].
