Critic Notes

This shows density and structure for a 2015 with ripe tannins and bright fruit character. Full body. Chewy texture. Extremely well done for Médoc. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

Score: 92-93/100James Suckling

The 2015 Senejac is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. It has a pure, black cherry, pastille-like bouquet with touches of melted tar and licorice. The palate is well balanced with dry, rather masculine tannin on the entry, a good line of acidity, fresh and nicely proportioned with cedar and tobacco furnishing the long finish. This is a well-crafted, capable Sénéjac that deserves 5-6 years in bottle, and I expect it to land at the top of my banded score. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2035

Mid crimson only. Inky and fragrant. Very sweet palate entry. Finishes dry. Not a standout but very competent. Light- to medium-bodied. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2031

The 2015 Sénéjac is soft, floral and quite pretty. The 2015 offers lovely up front fruit, but then loses some persistence on the mid-palate and finish. Silky tannins give the wine much of its feminine, gracious personality. Tasted two times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

Score: 87-89/100Antonio Galloni

The 2015 Senejac is medium garnet-purple colored with an earthy nose of pepper, damp soil, cassis and plums. The medium-bodied palate is chewy and tart, lacking fruit and finishing a little rubbery. Feb 2018, www.robertparker.com

2014: THE F+R PICKS. SMITH-HAUT-LAFITTE
They know what they’re doing at Smith-Haut-Lafitte. This is one of the few properties in Bordeaux that really engages with the end customer, and one that is particularly aware of the commercial realities of what they are making. The Cathiards, owners since 1990, have a clear ambition - to be the best - and they are well on this road. ...

Château Gilette: The World’s Most Unique Sauternes
Château Gilette is a sweet wine unlike any other in Sauternes, due to its unique ageing process in which the élevage process takes 20 years, prior to the wine being released onto the market. This remarkable process initially came about during the Second World War. At this time it was impossible to sell any fine wine and owner René Médeville ...
