"The 2014 Senejac has a withdrawn but well defined bouquet with more undergrowth aromas than many of its peers, unreservedly classic in style (and there is nothing wrong with that). The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe blackberry and boysenberry on the entry, a slight tinniness on the back palate with a very tightly wound finish. This clearly needs 4-5 years in bottle but it has the matière to repay those with patience. Tasted September 2016." (WA)

"The 2014 Senejac is a very pretty, if somewhat understated, wine. Sweet floral notes, bright red stone fruit, mint and licorice are nicely delineated. The 2014 is a touch slender, but it offers solid balance. Drink this pleasing midweight Haut-Médoc over the next few years." (VM)

"The smoky redcurrant nose here leads into a surprisingly concentrated, supple, mid-weight palate with moderately dry tannins and nice harmony. Why wait?" (JS)

"This is a structured wine that has both firm tannins and ripe black plum fruits. It is concentrated and serious, the wood aging and the fruit tannins giving a lift and richness to the spicy fruit. The estate, dating to the 17th century, has 96 acres. Drink from 2021." (WE)
