This wine is characterised by a deep colour, almost black in its younger years. The expressive nose shows aromas of black fruits and spices. In the mouth has intensity while remaining smooth and civilised with its fine tannins. This is a charming and distinguished wine to drink young to its fullness and fruit, or even better to age slowly to find the characteristics of its terroir.
"From the Bignon-Cordier family, this is a sleek, sexy Médoc with good chewy tannins and a lovely rich texture to the blackberry fruit. It has a serious edge, showing some menthol notes on the finish and a feeling of freshness that accompanies the entire experience beginning to end. Good persistency. A successful vintage here." 91 points, Decanter
"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Senejac gives notions of crushed red and black cherries, mulberries and cassis with touches of earth, violets, chocolate box and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied and laden with bags of juicy fruit, it has a soft structure and great length." 90 points, The Wine Advocate
"Very charming and precocious with ripe-redcurrant character and a lovely combination of delicate sweetness and supple tannins on the palate, the finish long and silky. Drink or hold." 92 points, James Suckling
"The 2016 Sénéjac is wonderfully expressive. Savory, earthy and quite delicate, the 2016 is full of complexity and nuance. Sweet tobacco, dried flowers, mint and leather add shades of nuance to this pretty, inviting Haut-Médoc." 91 points, Vinous
