This 150 hectare Cru Bourgeois estate in the Haut Medoc, is a planted with 41 hectares of vineyards in the deep gravel soils, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with smaller percentages of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The Sénéjac-Pian vineyard benefits from an oceanic climate due to the proximity of the Atlantic Ocean. With plentiful rain in winter, and sunshine and heat in summer. Very often summer is prolonged by a cool and sunny September, where alternating day and night temperatures favour the ripening of the grapes.

Winemaking is carried out by Alfred Tesseron`s wine-making team from Pontet-Canet, with fermentation in stainless steel vats and gentle extraction of colour, tannin and aromatics. Malolactic fermentation; with the wine aged in French oak for 12-14 months (30% of which is new).

Château Senejac, Petit Senejac has a bright, lifted nose with freshly picked blueberry fruits and expressive violet notes. The pallete is juicy, but balanced. Ripe berry fruits are abundant, whilst gentle spice adds dimension. It's weighty with soft, gentle tannins and an enduring fruit charged finish.

Excellent paired with game, beef, lamb and duck, but equally delicious with roast chicken, grilled vegetables and a wide variety of dishes.
