Chateau Senejac Haut-Medoc Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot Bordeaux Haut Medoc France Sparkling Wine Haut Medoc 2005
Yet another excellent 2005, proving what a fabulously consistent vintage thisis in Bordeaux. Typical southern Haut-Médoc Claret, quite perfumed withsoft black fruit and cassis characteristics followed by good structure andconcentration on the palate with tannins in abundance but so ripe that they arenot at all intrusive. It is perfect with roast lamb or partridge, and also withhard cheese. Do give it plenty of air if drinking now. (Alun Griffiths MW, BBR Wine Director)
The story of this estate dates back to the 16th century but in 1999 it was bought by the late Lorraine Cordier whose family also own Chateau Talbot in Saint Julien. It consists of 150 hectares on sand and gravel soils of which 39 are under vine. Only red wines are made. In 2003 it was made a Cru Bourgeoise Superior. There are two second wines Artigues de Senejac and La Bergerie de Senejac

decanted 3 hours, very little sediment. lightly smoky bramble fruit, wet pine and blueberries on the nose, medium body, ripe black cherries, earth and chocolate on the palette with elegant, long-lasting finish of cherry and orange peel with subtle hints of oak and smoke. Very delicious wine and the tannins would smooth out beautifully in the next few years.
I'll go along with the 90 score. This wine was quite enjoyable.

An attractive, reasonably priced offering, the 2005 Senejac exhibits subtle aromas of roasted herbs interwoven with scents of cedar, fruitcake, black currants, and cherries. Medium-bodied and slightly tannic, it will provide savory drinking over the next 10-12 years.
