    A Precise and Elegant Grand Vin from Medoc

    A true standard of the Medoc appellation, Chateau Potensac is one of the must-see estates of the Left Bank, producing wines that are highly appreciated by Bordeaux wine lovers.

    Product of a challenging vintage, the Chateau Potensac 2017 perfectly exemplifies the style of a property through its strong personality, illustrating the consistent quality of one of the only "Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel" estates of its appellation.

    Long recognized for the unique characteristics and aging capacity of its wines, Chateau Potensac expands over a vineyard of 84 hectares with a rare soil. The vines are planted on mounds with calcareous subsoils covered by gravelly clay with a high proportion of gravel. These peculiarities lend Chateau Potensac's wines all of their charm and allure.

    In a blend dominated by Merlot (47%), complemented with Cabernet Sauvignon (35%), Cabernet Franc (17%) and Petit Verdot (1%), the Chateau Potensac 2017 expresses the typical characteristics of each grape variety.

    Already very expressive, the Chateau Potensac 2017 is a great reflection of its vintage. With a profile that emphasizes freshness and exudes a purity of fruit, this wine presents a beautiful aromatic concentration. On the palate, this Medoc wine reveals an elegant texture mounted on a fine tannic structure and tightened with a balanced acidity. Powerful, dense and of great finesse, the Chateau Potensac 2017 embodies the pure Medoc style, an inimitable Potensac signature.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Pontensac is scented of crushed black cherries, blackberries and cedar chest with wafts of tobacco and forest floor. The palate is medium-bodied with appealing freshness and approachable chewy tannins, finishing earthy.
