Château Potensac 2021
Appellation - Médoc
"A blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and an unusually high 23% Cabernet France, the 2021 Potensac offers up attractive aromas of cassis, loamy soil, wilted rose petals and pipe tobacco. Medium-bodied, supple and lively, with ripe, powdery tannins and a saline finish, it's a charming, perfumed rendition of this Médoc estate. Tasted three times."
William Kelley, Wine Advocate (260), April 2022
"Classically-balanced Podensac, dense ruby in colour, this is not exuberant, full of cool blue fruits, a signature of the good wines of the vintage, careful extraction, gentle overall, this is good quality and can be approached early. Highest level of Cabernet Franc ever, 3.54ph, 37hl/h yield after mildew. Harvest through to October 13th. Tasted twice."
