2022 Château Sénéjac, Haut-Médoc

2022 Château Sénéjac, Haut-Médoc

Tasted April 2023. One of the best wines Senejac has produced in recent vintages. Expressive and generous, with ripe black berries on the nose, with some soft black plum. Open and juicy on the palate, with refreshing acidity and some creamier flavours from oak. There's some mineral grip towards the finish with silky tannins. Definitely a good buy this year.

Tasting notes

Impressive, it has lift and character, floral notes of red roses, raspberry leaf and peony, flirts with high alcohols and touches of cloves and tar from the oak, but there is supple fruit underneath, and the tannins have give and lift, not just shutting things down. Vintage signature without overkill. One to look out for, tasted twice. 30% new oak for ageing.

Jane Anson, janeanson.com (May 2023)

The 2022 Sénéjac is one of the best wines that this northern Médoc cru Bourgeois has produced in the last decade or two. Offering up aromas of cherries, dark berries, peonies and pencil shavings, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and succulent, with a rich core of fruit, supple tannins and a persistent finish.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, Issue #266 (April 2023)

Very attractive, crunchy dark fruit with medium to full body and spiced, chocolatey character. Firm and structured with velvety tannins and a lingering finish. Plenty of currant and hazelnut character.
