Showing deep color, leather, cedar, tree leaf, spice and red currants pop right off the bat, this wine is medium/full-bodied with sandy, soft tannins and freshness in the finish. This should show well with just a few years of age. 89-91 Pts

Ripe, dark red fruit, cedar and tobacco leaf with a hint of bitter cocoa and spice are at the core of this wine. On the palate, the wine is round, fruity, soft and juicy with loads of ripe, sweet berries in the finish. This debut vintage for Jean-Michel Laporte at the property has turned out quite well.

The ripe dark fruit found in the 2018 vintage really shines here. The cedar, tobacco and dark berries comes through nicely on the nose and on the medium/full-bodied, round, soft palate. The finish offers upfront, forward and easy to like already. This is the first vintage for Jean-Michel Laporte who consults at the property. The wine was made from 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. 90-92 Pts

Medium bodied, soft tannins, forward with an open, black cherry, cassis, licorice and earthy, espresso bean character, this is already fun to drink with a little bit of air. Bringing in the team of Alfred Tesseron has really upped the game for Senejac.

Fully mature, value priced charmer with loads of tobacco, wet earth, cedar wood, plums and blackberry. Good concentration, a little rusticity in the tannins, but plenty of fruit and character in the finish. No need for further aging. If I had any, I'd drink the remaining bottles over the next 5 - 7 years or so. The bottle was popped and poured.
