Dense and layered with blueberry and chocolate character. Medium body, fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Racy and refined already.

The 2016 Sénéjac has an attractive bouquet with floral-tinged red and black fruit - strawberry pastilles and just a touch of bay leaf, nicely defined and gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with the tannin, well-judged acidity, very harmonious with assiduous use of new oak. This is a very stylish Haut Médoc, one of the best that I have tasted in many years. THis comes highly recommended.

BETTANE + DESSEAUVE - En magnum
Boisé, ample, assez large d'épaules
Firm, yet ripe, with a fine tannic grain. Although not saying much aromatically, one could sense something "serious" to the barrel sample. Give it time, as barrel aging should the tannin, and this should be quite a nice wine for the price.
