A delicate Médoc red wine with a beautiful aromatic palette
Located in the northern Médoc, west of the Bordeaux region, Château Potensac has been in the same family for numerous generations. This property has always been handed down from mother to daughter. Today, it is the turn of Jean-Hubert Delon, grandson of Georgette Liquard, to ensure the influence of this château, which is considered a true emblem of the wines of the northern Médoc.
Château Potensac 2022 is a Médoc wine made from a 40-hectare vineyard located in the heart of the appellation. The vines are 45 years old on average and are situated on clay and gravel hillsides with a limestone subsoil which gives the wine its minerality, tension and freshness.
A winter alternating coolness and mildness advanced budburst at the end of March. The warm, dry conditions of spring were ideal for ensuring optimal development of the vines. Although the scorching summer slowed down growth, the few rainy periods were beneficial. The health of the vineyard ended up exceptional. Concentrated and small in size, the grapes harmoniously combine richness and freshness.
Château Potensac 2022 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (43%), Merlot (36.5%), Cabernet Franc (19.5%) and Petit Verdot (1%).
