Chateau Potensac Medoc [Pre-arrival] 2019
JS94-95: Excellent Potensac with a creamy and tight tannin structure. Blueberries and blackberries with some salt and minerals at the end. Classic structure. One of the best ever.
JD91-93: The 2019 Château Potensac showed beautifully, and this will be a wine to buy in multiples or a case. Deep purple-colored with beautiful currant and black cherry fruit, it's medium-bodied, has a plush, sexy texture, sweet tannins, and lots of classic cedar and tobacco notes. It's going to drink well for 15 years or so.
WA90-92+: The 2019 Potensac is a blend of 47% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, harvested from the 21st of September to the 9th of October. The alcohol came in at 14.05% with a pH of 3.54 and an IPT of 74. It is aging in French oak barriques, 34% new. With a deep purple-black color, the nose hits the ground running with lively scents of black raspberries, warm cassis and redcurrant jelly plus suggestions of garrigue, tilled soil, unsmoked cigars and pencil shavings. The medium to full-bodied palate is positively invigorating, offering bags of crunchy black and red berry flavors and a racy line of freshness, framed by approachable, grainy tannins and finishing with a skip in its step. In a word: FUN!
