Château Potensac, Médoc, 2018

  Château Potensac

Chateau Potensac, based in the northern extremities of the Medoc often produces great value wines. Made by the Delon team at Leoville Las Cases, this is proper, classic claret that ages beautifully. It is a strict style, there's no messing around here, no make up, just beautiful, crisp, pure fruit. Taut and refined with lots of energy, concentration and bright red cherry fruit. This will no doubt develop into a really attractive Potensac. 45% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

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.
