Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark 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.Drinking Window 2023 - 2040 (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

2016 Ch. Senejac is a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon 37 Merlot 11 Cabernet Franc and 4 Petite Verdot. I have owned many vintages of Senejac over the years and I always age them 7-10 years out and they always taste great. 2016 is dead on consistent Senejac, fresh, firm red-black fruit, elegant Medoc wine with good acid in an absolutely classic style, which means no fruitball! 1 star.

This was one of the great surprises of the Left Bank in 2016. This wine is so elegant! Notes of bright red fruit, flowers and spice grace the nose. The palate offers purity and depth of fruit while maintaining perfectly polished edges. A lovely wine for a fantastic price.

From 40 hectares of vines in Le Pian-Médoc, just north of the city of Bordeaux itself. Always solid if occasionally rustic this property has improved markedly in the past few years. The 2016 vintage was one of the standouts among the wines of the Haut-Médoc at the big Maison Joanne tasting in Bordeaux during en primeur week. The blend is 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot. Impressive weight with loads of ripe, sweet fruit and fine tannins. Best ever from here?

Wow! This could be the best ever by them--much better than their 2015 or even 2009. Fine structure from this 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot blend. Red berry aromas with a touch of oak. Quite perfumey. Deep color and great structure on the palate-sweet, long finish. Superb value for $15.
Drink from 2019 to 2035
