An elegant red wine from the Médoc

Château Potensac is located in the Médoc. A Cru bourgeois exceptional and produced on more than 80 hectares, this wine is blend of 48% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Cabernet Franc.

The Château Potensac 2012 is a high quality vintage. At tasting, one can first observe a dense ruby and purple colour. On the nose, you can smell scents of dust, earth, blackcurrant, black cherry, liquorice and subtle cedar notes. On the palate, this wine is quite full-bodied, rich, fruity and fresh. This high value vintage can be consumed between the next 6 to 10 years.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Potensac surpassed my expectations from barrel, because as I stated back then, it has developed more flesh to counterbalance those prenatal hard tannins. It has an attractive if unspectacular raspberry, strawberry and tobacco-scented bouquet, quite closed at first, opaque, but opening with several minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe blackberry fruit laced with tobacco and sea salt. I appreciate the finish here. There is satisfying substance, a gentle grip and a classic pencil lead, almost Pauillac-like finish. Enjoy this upstanding Médoc from Jean-Hubert Delon over the next 10-12 years. Tasted January 2016.
