Château Potensac a le niveau d'un excellent Cru Classé. Ce Médoc appartient à la famille Delon, propriétaire de Château Léoville-Las Cases.
The excellence of this lies in the quality of the tannins, which are so polished and refined. Compact and tight. Medium-bodied. Very, very long. Beauty already.
The dark cherry and plum fruit is fresh and direct, with light tobacco and toast accents hanging on the finish.
«…The wine has 14.42% alcohol and is to be aged in barriques, 35% new; the finished blend was put into barrels last December. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it rolls effortlessly out of the glass with bright, fresh red and black plums, crushed blackcurrants and bay leaves with hints of cracked pepper and damp soil. Full-bodied, rich and laden with red and black fruit layers, it has a plush frame of rounded tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing long.»
Beau rouge sombre. Nez d'intensité moyenne et fruité. Bouche charmante, au corps délicat, à la texture parfumée, aux tannins fins. Du charme. Longueur moyenne.
...Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it rolls out of the glass with open-knit scents of ripe, juicy black plums, boysenberries, redcurrant jelly and cassis, plus hints of dried Provence herbs, cinnamon stick and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of lively black and red berry layers, supported by soft tannins and a racy line, finishing with a lively skip in its step.
