This second wine of Château Senejac, this is attractive in appearance thanks to its beautiful garnet colour, this wine is presented on the nose by an elegant cocktail of fresh and fruity aromas but also finely toasted characters. The approach is balanced, supported by a beautiful freshness, then a structure with a light and fleshy tannic frame, giving a rounded wholeness.
Steak, especially richer steak dishes such as tournedos rossini. Roast duck - even Chinese-style crispy duck pancakes.
Cabernet Sauvignon 41%
