Chateau Potensac Médoc 2005


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

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 .

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.
