2009 Senejac, Haut-Médoc
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is a major sleeper of the vintage and the finest Senejac I have tasted. The team from Pontet Canet, who have done such a phenomenal job at that estate, were in charge of making this Senejac, and the result, not surprisingly, is a sensational wine that consumers need to buy by the case. Dense purple, with notes of creme de cassis, incense, licorice and forest floor, this wine is delicious and full-bodied, with sweet tannins, low acidity, copious fruit and exceptional concentration. Everything is in balance, and the wine is capable of lasting 10 or more years.
Delicious already with polished, velvety tannins. Medium-to-full body with fresh herbs and a berry, cherry aftertaste. Hard not to drink it all now.
Rich and seductive. Meaty and broad and ripe. An edge of tarmacadam. Serious stuff. Very dry finish after an opulent start. No-one could object to this is given as a gift. Drink 2015 - 2023
