Bordeaux Blend: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot.

This 37-hectare estate in the southern Médoc (not far from the likes of La Lagune and Cantemerle) has delivered a fine effort in the form of the 2021 Sénéjac. Offering up aromas of cassis, spices, pipe tobacco and loamy soil, it's medium-bodied, ample and fleshy, with the supple tannins and charming, open personality that's typical of wines from this sector. Château Talbot's Jean-Michel Laporte is the winemaker. 88-90 William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

The 2021 Sénéjac was picked from September 24 to October 7. The perfumed nose features potpourri-tinged red fruit, red cherries and blood orange, nicely focused but not intense. The palate is medium-bodied and fresh, with grainy tannins, modest depth and just a slight attenuation toward the finish. Enjoy over the next 12–15 years. 88-90 Neal Martin.

Floral and brightly scented with such clarity on the nose, so expressive but delicate too. I like the clarity here, it's not weighty or particularly textured but so refined on the palate, really just gentle but so charming. So well worked with a grace of flavours where nothing sticks out but nothing too heavy either. I really like this - it's not trying too hard, still with acidity, red berry fruits and some chalky tannins. 88 Georgina Hindle, Decanter.
