Winemaker's Notes

From 25 hectares, set in a tableau of differing parcels, each adding somethingto the ensemble, Senechaux is a fairly typical blend, made up of 60% Grenache,the balance shared almost equally between Syrah and Mourvedre. The 2005 is morepowerful and concentrated than the pretty 2004 wine; its tannins will ensurelongevity and the concentration of sweet Grenache fruit will underwritequality. Great things are happening at this Domaine; the eponymous old menshould be very proud.
