On the left bank of Bordeaux, between the Gironde and the Landes forests, to the North of Saint-Estèphe, Château Sénilhac covers 40.7 hectares, whose 23.76 hectares are planted with vines. The vineyard benefits from a clay-limestone soil, which conceals in its subsoil a large reserve of water, so precious during years of drought, thus giving the wine harmony and richness.

With an average age of 25 years, the vineyard is cultivated with respect and observation to highlight its excellence.

The terroir/grape variety combination makes Château Sénilhac a round, supple and fleshy wine, pleasant to enjoy young, but also, thanks to the important share of Cabernet, an excellent wine for aging.

The grape varieties of the vineyard is composed of:


Each plot benefits from precise work adapted to its profile. Regular monitoring of maturity is carried out by analysis and tasting. The grapes are harvested well-ripened and in the best possible sanitary condition. Château Sénilhac is certified as a High Environmental Value vineyard.

The harvest is mechanical with on-board sorting. In addition, a mechanical sorting table followed by manual sorting completes the selection.

The vinification is carried out with care and attention, in a modern vat room, composed of thermo-regulated stainless-steel vats hosting each plot separately. This work of plot differentiation is essential to the blending of each terroir.

The wine is then aged in French oak barrels, carefully selected, and placed in an aging cellar. Each harvest is entirely bottled at the Estate.


Château Sénilhac is run by a team of passionate professionals, who combine their skills in order to obtain the best expression of the Haut Médoc terroir. We are continually improving our know-how while respecting the plant and people.
