Château Sénéjac Jéroboam 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker's Wine Advocat awards it 89-91 points and says "Run by the Cordier family, with the vineyard managed by Alfred Tesseron’s team at Pontet-Canet, this is the first vintage from their biodynamically farmed estate, and it is certainly the best wine I have ever tasted from Senejac. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, oodles of black currant fruit are intermixed with some licorice, underbrush, and foresty notes. Great fruit, a sumptuous, fleshy texture, and plenty of succulence and length make for a big, rich, nicely textured wine to drink over the next decade." Jancis Robinson says, "Mid dark crimson. Well balanced. Savoury and succulent with just a slight polish of 2009 over it. Not sweet at all. God stuff. Serious wine."
