Château Potensac, Médoc, 2005

  Château Potensac

On the nose this wine appears to be a real powerhouse, with great intensity and mocha complexity. However, on the palate it is tempered with the elegance that comes from the finest of tannins. Medium bodied, with good balance, this is another extremely good 2005 from the Delon stable.

Contains Sulphites.

About Château Potensac

Potensac is a Cru Bourgeois, located in the appellation of Médoc.

Appellation: Médoc

With the exception of Haut Brion, all the Chateaux listed in the 1855 classification are situated in the Medoc, however, as with the Haut Medoc, most of the grand names defer to their more specific appellations. This is a vast AOC with around 1500 different wine-making estates. There are many good AOC Medoc wines, which did belong to the now defunct Cru Bourgois classification. The most notable estate is Potensac, which is owned by Leoville Las Cases.

Grape Blend: Cab. Sauvignon | Merlot

A classic partnership. The stock left bank Bordeaux blend also used to good affect in the New World. Cabernet's, acidic, tannic complex qualities marry ideally with Merlot's sweet, softy flesh characteristics.
