Wine Advocate is full of praise for the wine: "2022 Sénéjac is one of the best wines that this northern Médoc cru Bourgeois has produced in the last decade or two." Suckling described its "full body and spiced, chocolatey character". A seductive buy.

Enjoy tremendous quality at a very reasonable price with this 5-star vintage of Château Sénéjac. It’s one of the better known Cru Bourgeois, located near the vineyards of Margaux and owned since 1999 by the Cordier family, proprietors, too, of Château Talbot. They lavish the same care on the Sénéjac wines as they do on those from their Cru Classé Pauillac property, the bottles of which fetch a great deal more. The wine is a blend of both Cabernets, Merlot and Petit Verdot, matured in oak barriques, a luxurious one third of which are new, for 12-15 months, depending on the vintage. With lovely ripeness and balance and fine tannins, it’s a classic Haut-Médoc. Decant an hour or so beforehand and enjoy with rare roast lamb, beef or duck.

"Very attractive, crunchy dark fruit with medium to full body and spiced, chocolatey character" James Suckling
