Tasting Notes

The 2016 Sénéjac is wonderfully expressive. Savory, earthy and quite delicate, the 2016 is full of complexity and nuance. Sweet tobacco, dried flowers, mint and leather add shades of nuance to this pretty, inviting Haut-Médoc.

Score: 91

The 2016 Sénéjac is exquisite. Sweet tobacco, mint, grilled herbs and dark red fruit give the 2016 is a striking interplay of aromatic intensity and palate presence. Powerful and deep, the 2016 offers notable depth yet also remains quite finessed for the year. Layers of fruit build into a long finish laced with expressive savory and earth-driven tones. This is an especially delicate style for the year. Tasted two times.

Score: 88 - 91

Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com 01 April 2017

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Senejac gives notions of crushed red and black cherries, mulberries and cassis with touches of earth, violets, chocolate box and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied and laden with bags of juicy fruit, it has a soft structure and great length.

Score: 90

The 2016 Sénéjac has an attractive bouquet with floral-tinged red and black fruit—strawberry pastilles and just a touch of bay leaf, nicely defined and gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, well-judged acidity, very harmonious with assiduous use of new oak. This is a very stylish Haut-Médoc, one of the best that I have tasted in many years. This comes highly recommended.

Score: 91 - 93

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate Maturity: 2022-2042 28 April 2017

From the Bignon-Cordier family, this is a sleek, sexy Médoc with good chewy tannins and a lovely rich texture to the blackberry fruit. It has a serious edge, showing some menthol notes on the finish and a feeling of freshness that accompanies the entire experience beginning to end. Good persistency. A successful vintage here.

Score: 91

Decanter Maturity: 2023-2040 21 April 2017

Relaxed, well-integrated, ripe nose. Sweet, purple fruits and quite a bit of both acid and tannin but just the right side of rasping. A success on a bourgeois scale. Lovely fresh confidence. GV? 16.5+

Score: 16 - 17

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2023-2033 20 April 2017

Dense and layered with blueberry and chocolate character. Medium body, fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Racy and refined already.

Score: 92 - 93
