$102.00 per bottle

Stock: Deleted

Potensac is an estate in the northern sector of the Médoc, a district renowned for producing tannic, brooding clarets which require significant ageing before drinking. It belongs to the Delon family, who also own the great Château Léoville-Las Cases, and benefits from being made by the same highly-skilled team.

Potensac is an estate in the northern sector of the Médoc, a district renowned for producing tannic, brooding clarets which require significant ageing before drinking. It belongs to the Delon family, who also own the great Château Léoville-Las Cases, and benefits from being made by the same highly-skilled team.

The result is a wine of great complexity, one of the very best in the appellation. The wine is rich in blackcurrant aromas and with plenty of tannin.

90 A superb value for Jean-Hubert Delon, the 2005 Potensac has a deep ruby/purple colour, 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 classé. Moreover, it will age very well for 10-15 years. Very impressive!
