It’s been a while since I had a Potensac like this. Aromatic, very structured and polished with currant character and wonderful length. Polished tannins. Exceptionally small production for this year.
The Château Potensac 2014 is a blend of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot that includes 13% pressed wine. It was picked between 25 September and 16 October over a total of 14 days. The nose is well defined and classic in style with graphite and cedar infusing the black berry and briary fruit, the Cabernet Franc lending more complexity as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with quite noticeable acidity like many in the Médoc, quite lively in the mouth already. There is moderate complexity here and decent length... (NM)
The 2014 Potensac offers striking intensity to match its bold, inviting personality. Blue and black stone fruit, grilled herbs, licorice and dark spices make a strong first impression. The Delon family makes a number of top-notch wines, and Potensac is arguably the hidden jewel in the range. Drink this exuberant Médoc over the next handful of years. The blend is 40% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. (AG)
With low yields after a hail storm, the wine is concentrated and dense. It has a touch of wood aging as well as dark black fruits. The tannins are firm in a wine that will age well over the medium term. (RV)
A blend of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2014 Potensac is more herbal and weedy compared to the 2015, yet offers medium-bodied richness and sweet fruit on the palate. It’s a charming, forward, easy going 2014 to drink over the coming decade.
This has a core of lightly mulled plum, cherry and red currant fruit, all framed by a slightly taut singed cedar note. A bright streak of iron underscores the finish, leaving a mouthwatering feel. A minerally style that should age well in the short term. (JM)
