Description

On the land which dominates the river of l’Aygue Longue, in the middle of the vines, a park with centenary trees and livewells nestles : Château Sénéjac. Nicolas de Bloys is the first known owner. In the 16th century, this spirited squire (husband of Jeanne Fleix) planted the first vines on the estate. In the 18th century, the castle was bought by Joseph-Ignace de Chatard, a member of the Bordeaux Parliament. In 1746, he sold Sénéjac to his nephew, Jean-Louis Baour, future mayor of Pian-Médoc. By the middle of the 19th century, Château Sénéjac vineyard was already producing the equivalent of 100,000 bottles per year. The soil of Château Sénéjac is located halfway between Margaux and Bordeaux, on the clayey-gravelly crest of the commune of Pian-Médoc. The soil is therefore covered with gravel and the proportion varies according to the location of the plot. This soil is naturally poor in organic matter which favours the expression of the great Cabernet Sauvignon.

TASTING NOTES

The wines of Sénéjac are characterized by a deep color almost black in their young years. The very expressive nose exhales scents of black fruits and spices. In the mouth, Sénéjac presents a lot of fullness and intensity while remaining suave and civilized thanks to the smoothness of its tannins.
