      Tasting Notes
      Chateau Senejac has a long history in the Medoc . While the property dates back to the 1500’s, vines were not planted for a few hundred years until some point in the 18th century. The estate remained in the hands of the family for close to two centuries. The de Guigne family owned the property from 1860 until 1999, when they sold Chateau Senejac to Lorraine Cordier, the owner of Chateau Talbot in St. Julien and her husband Thierry Rustmann. Lorraine Cordier passed away in 2011. Today, Chateau Senejac is managed by the sister of Lorraine Cordier, Nancy Bignon Cordier.

      It’s interesting that for much of its life, Chateau Senejac was known for producing white Bordeaux wine. That is no longer the case today as the property is planted exclusively for the production of red Bordeaux wine. After the Cordier family took over the estate, they produced high end wine that made its debut in 1999, Chateau Senejac Karolus. Chateau Senejac Karolus was made from a small, 3 hectare parcel of the estate’s oldest vines and was aged in a larger percentage of new, French oak barrels. Chateau Senejac Karolus is no longer being made. 2004 was the last vintage of Chateau Senejac produced. (The Wine Cellar Inside, May 2017)

      "Delicious, silky and elevated fruit, this should bring real pleasure even after 3 years and for another 10/15. Chateau Senejac is a regular overachiever and one of the best values from our trip, we managed to secure only 180 bottles"
      James Nicholson, April 2017

      "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. 91-93 Points." (Neal Martin, eRobertparker.com, April 2017)
