Chateau Potensac Medoc AOC 2009 37.5cl Half Bottle

Owned by the Delon family - who preside over more prestigious Second (2ème) Growth, Léoville-Las Cases – Chateau Potensac is located in the northern part of the Medoc.

There is a good deal of expertise at Potensac, with same same team from Léoville-Las Cases working at this chateau.

The vineyard of over 80Ha is composed of gravel with patches of clay and limestone. Vines range from 40-80 years of age.

Maceration and elevage take place in a combination of cement and stainless steel. Wines are then aged in French oak barrels passed down from Clos du Marquis (of Léoville-Las Cases fame) for between 14 and 16 months.

The 2009 vintage shows typical black fruits on the nose, with a rich, dense yet round palette adding tar, tea, and spice. Good minerality, typical of the chateau and finishing with cedar and nice framework of acidity.

Potensac wines are known for being rather robust and unapproachable in their youth, taking time to soften out their angular masculine character. With 5+ years of bottle ageing recommended this vintage is now ready to drink, or can be held.

Good value claret from a family with a great deal of expertise.
