Wine Advocate 93
"Since 2006, this property has been owned by the Cazes family (of Château Lynch Bages in Pauillac), and the wines seem to get better with each passing year. The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a full-bodied, supple but richly tannic blend of 61% Grenache, 22% Syrah and 17% Mourvèdre that spent time in foudres, old barriques and concrete, maturing into a strong, concentrated effort loaded with cherry fruit and spice."~J.C.

The Domaine des Sénéchaux counts itself amongst the oldest vineyards in Castro Novo, the birthplace of the wines of Pape and the creation of "appellations d'origine contrôlées." It lies in the heart of the mythical Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation and dates back to the XIV century. It owes its name to the domaine's key vineyards in the Bois Sénéchaux area.
The Cazes family, owners of Château Lynch-Bages in Pauillac, purchased the Domaine des Sénéchaux in 2006. With energy and dedication, the Cazes family have pursued the hard work carried out by Bernard Tranchecoste since 1998. Following significant renovation works on the vineyard, particular attention was paid to the Grenache old vines which attest to the Domaine's longevity. The estate produces robust reds and fleshy, aromatic whites that reflect the rich characters of their respective terroirs.
