6-23-14 Word On Wine Review 2 Old Style Bordeaux

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

This week we sample two wines from Bordeaux that I had the privilege trying earlier this year.   I decided it was time to explore Bordeaux and ended up spending a bit of time and money in the Haut Medoc!  These two classic high shouldered bottles had a lot to offer…check them both out you won’t be sorry.

1)2005 Chateau Senejac.  Haut Medoc.  $30.  Boredaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot…Truthfully I forgot the Cepage.  (Shoot me!)  This was a beautiful old world style wine that had great structure and tannins.  2005 was a rather tight vintage so a great idea is to open this a few hours earlier than you plan to drink it…or let it sit for a few more years!  (The former is my preference)  A great wine with dinner…a piece of history.

2006 Chateau Cantemerle.  Haut Medoc.  $25.  This was a little less austere than the Senejac having a little more heft and fruit.  This Bordeaux had a nice finish and great memories…a classic and a pleasure.

First check out our show and then pay a visit to the Bordeaux section of your local wine store.
