Relatively affordable yet really good Bordeaux is a rare thing. There’s good quality cheap Bordeaux, and high quality expensive Bordeaux, but I don’t encounter much between the two. Is that just my perspective? Anyway, this is really good, and it’s not too expensive.
Château Sénéjac 2009 Haut Medoc, Bordeaux, France
With a hefty dose of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend (60%), this is an impressive cru Bourgeois claret. The elegant packaging is matched by the wine, which shows ripe, sweet blackberry and blackcurrant fruit with a nice fresh quality and a hint of some meaty savouriness lurking in the background. Ripe, dense, structured and quite serious, and opens out nicely with air. Proper Bordeaux. 91/100 (£16.99 The Co-op)
