The estate’s Grand Vin’s vineyards are located west of Ordonnac village. Its rows of vines grow on gravelly-clay. They produce a very fine wine with tight texture, great richness and wonderful freshness. Because of these qualities, Château Potensac is often considered to represent the “pure Medoc style”. It should be noted that Potensac was the only “Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel” of its appellation.
This vintage has 47% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc and is aged in 35% new oak. This is a fantastic vintage for Potensac.
The 2017 vintage is intensely red with a floral and fruity bouquet along with light spicy notes. On the palate it is dry, with good aromatic complexity, balanced freshness and a long and persistent finish.
17/20 from Jancis Robinson who said it was ‘delicious’.
