Chateau Senejac 2009

89+ points

Haut-Medoc. 13.5%

It’s interesting, and somewhat unexpected just how much the vineyard expresses itself inspite of the vintage (very distinctive, extraordinary) and the new ownership/operators – I believe that the Pontet-Canet team are in-charge and Senejac is now biodynamic.

But it’s still Senejac, with pronounced minerality even in such a sumptuous vintage. Terrior in action ?

Red fruits, firm palate, though tannins are ripe and soft. Not a blockbuster by any means, and hardly likely to stand out at a tasting. But food friendly. And cellar oriented too I think but I would expect it’s best development before 15 years of age.
