An elegant light style claret with ripe fruit flavors can be drunk while young. The wide and open landscape of the northern end of the Médoc, Potensac has long stood out as the finest property. It makes the most of a favorable location, but more importantly is owned and directly by one of Bordeaux's brilliant wine-making families-The Delons who also own Léoville Las Cases in Saint Julien.

Wine Enthusiast91-93 Barrel sample. This wine has fine tannins that are relatively soft, with good acidity and dryness. It's not powerful, but with its fine black currant flavor and ripe fruit it shows great style .

Wine AdvocateA superb value for Jean-Hubert Delon, the 2005 Potensac has a deep ruby/purple color, a classic bouquet of sweet red and black fruits, as well as gorgeous texture and purity. Medium-bodied and concentrated, this wine behaves like a Medoc cru classe. Moreover, it will age very well for 10-15 years. Very impressive!

International Wine CellarMedium red. Very ripe, sweet aromas of plum, mocha and bitter chocolate. Unusually sweet and supple for this wine, with lovely depth and volume to its cassis and chocolate flavors. Very St. Estephe in style. Finishes powerful, sweet and long, with the unusually fine tannins arriving late. An outstanding performance for this chateau.

Wine SpectatorBalanced and very pretty, with blackberry, licorice and currant aromas and flavors. Full body, firm tannins and a medium finish. Best after 2008.
