Château Sénéjac, 2007

Château Sénéjac, 2007
Monsieur ‘Blanc’ of The Lion in Teddington gave me a quizzical look when I discussed ordering the 2007 Sénéjac, as we both knew the Bordeaux 2007 vintage didn’t have the greatest reputation, and I’m sure he was wondering in the back of his French mind if I really knew anything about wine at all. “I ...
