K&L Notes

89 points Robert Parker: "The dark plum/purple-tinged 2003 Potensac is a sleeper of the vintage. Sweet, exotic scents of mincemeat, black currants, cherries, and crushed rocks are followed by an elegant, fleshy, forward, delicious claret to enjoy over the next 5-7 years, although this wine has a tendency to last longer. It is one of the finest Potensacs produced in several years." (04/06) According to the Wine Spectator: "Very pretty blackberry and currant aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a silky finish. Nicely done. Best after 2009." (03/06) Barrel sample according to Clyde Beffa, K&L's Bordeaux Buyer: "43% cabernet sauvignon, 33% merlot and 23% cabernet franc. Perfumey, almost flowery nose. Forward and ripe. Some Asian spices and coca-cola also on the nose. Lots of grip to this wine with tons of tannin at back end. This could develop well-time will tell. .5*" (04/04)

    Wow. It took a few minutes in a decanter to settle down and open up, but this is a Bordeaux to please the most hedonistic of palates. It has black fruits, rich cassis, and an incredibly ripe, lush texture, with a light dusting of tannin on the finish. This is textbook 2003 Bordeaux from an historically hot vintage. Unbelievable bargain.
