Released this morning and with potential scores as high as 93-94 points (JS), 2022 Château Sénéjac makes for a classic start to this year's Bordeaux En Primeur offers.
Sénéjac is the epitome of a Cru Bourgeois estate, a historic property within a stones-throw of the famous communes, with the wine made by a top team, the Cordiers of Château Talbot, with Eric Boissenot consulting. All this for just £142 per dozen in bond.
At en primeur, we usually focus on another classic Cru Bourgeois, Château Beaumont (due to release next week). We think both wines are superb, the main difference being that Beaumont is in a more structured style with firmer tannins, so drinks best with some ageing, whereas Sénéjac seems to have perfected a soft, supple style with plenty of dark fruits. Both wines will deserve a place in your cellar in this outstanding vintage, so do please email us with your order.
Offered En Primeur, landing in spring 2025.
Magnums available with £15 bottling surcharge, please enquire for other formats.

Tasting Notes"The 2022 Sénéjac is one of the best wines that this northern Médoc cru Bourgeois has produced in the last decade or two. Offering up aromas of cherries, dark berries, peonies and pencil shavings, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and succulent, with a rich core of fruit, supple tannins and a persistent finish. 90-92 points." WK, Wine Advocate------"Very attractive, crunchy dark fruit with medium to full body and spiced, chocolatey character. Firm and structured with velvety tannins and a lingering finish. Plenty of currant and hazelnut character. 93-94 points." JS, Jamessuckling.com
