Chapelle de Potensac, Medoc (Second Wine)
The estate's Grand Vin's vineyards are located west of Ordonnac village. Its rows of vines grow on a double thalweg of gravelly-clay. They produce a very fine wine with tight texture, great richness and wonderful freshness. On the palate, the wine is pure and powerful, the tannins dense and spicy, and the finish of great depth with glorious aromas. Because of these qualities, Château Potensac is often considered to represent the "pure Medoc style". It should be noted that Potensac was the only "Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel" of its appellation.
56% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The result is a very well balanced Medoc, roundness and freshness.
Blue and black stone fruit, grilled herbs, licorice and dark spices make a strong first impression
