La Bergerie de Senejac Haut-Medoc 1997

Member Review by duncan 906:

This bottle of wine was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/85406. Haut-Medoc is a large appellation set up in 1936 for wines produced in 15 communes on the eastern side of the Medoc peninsular stretching nearly 40 miles north of the City of Bordeaux. It is an 'umbrella' appellation because it includes several smaller but more prestigious appellations such as Pauillac and Margaux.Winemaking really got started here at the end of the 17th century when Dutch engineers drained the salt marshes and it now includes some of the world's greatest wine estates.La Bergerie de Senejac is a second wine made at Chateau Senejac and I have been unable to find the exact cepagement but it is probably made from younger vines and with less oak. I started it last night with my supper of roast pork and I did enjoy it.There is some blackcurrant and blackberry fruit there and the tannins are fairly soft but compared to other Bordeaux wines and the Chateau's grand vin which I had back in 2013 it is quite bland. This may be because of the age of the bottle. In short,this was an OK bottle but not one to buy again or write home about

Château Sénéjac:
The story of this estate dates back to the 16th century but in 1999 it was bought by the late Lorraine Cordier whose family also own Chateau Talbot in Saint Julien. It consists of 150 hectares on sand and gravel soils of which 39 are under vine. Only red wines are made. In 2003 it was made a Cru Bourgeoise Superior. There are two second wines Artigues de Senejac and  La Bergerie de Senejac
