(From 2005 Vintage) Yet another excellent 2005, proving what a fabulously consistent vintage thisis in Bordeaux. Typical southern Haut-Médoc Claret, quite perfumed withsoft black fruit and cassis characteristics followed by good structure andconcentration on the palate with tannins in abundance but so ripe that they arenot at all intrusive. It is perfect with roast lamb or partridge, and also withhard cheese. Do give it plenty of air if drinking now. (Alun Griffiths MW, BBR Wine Director)

Majestic: Origin Sénéjac is one of the better known Crus Bourgeois of the Haut-Médoc. The wine is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc and is aged in oak barriques for 18 months. It represents great value for fans of mature claret as it ages so gracefully. Taste The 2002 offers copious amounts of sweet currant and cherry fruit with cedar and spice box. While neither flamboyant nor deep, it is a well-balanced, attractive effort.' Robert Parker 86 points.
