Chateau Potensac is produced in the Medoc appellation. The vineyard is 84 hectares, with vines around 38 years old. The soil is a mixture of clay and gravel on a bed of limestone. 2016 is a blend of Merlot (44%), Cabernet Sauvignon (39%), Cabernet Franc (15%) & Petit Verdot (2%).
The weather in 2016 was very complicated to handle. It rained heavily from January to March, creating a water reserve. The mild weather of March called for premature burning of the vines. April was cool and rainy and slowed down development. After mid-June the summer became very hot and dry. Relief came in mid-September with rain allowing for the grapes to finish maturing. Harvest took place from October 5th to 19th.
Chateau Potensac 2016 was able to fully express the potential hidden in their grapes, in spite of difficult weather. Merlot's density and softness are immediately recognizable, while the Cabernet Franc adds depth. The Cabernet Sauvignon, shows power and roundness. A concentrated, elegant wine that that should mature perfectly. Very good potential for ageing.
