Château Potensac 2019
Tinto procedente de la afamada A.O.C. Médoc. El viñedo donde se cultivan las uvas de este vino está catalogado como Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel, el único en su zona que cuenta con dicha distinción. Está elaborado con Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet franc y Petit verdot, mezcla clásica que, según anticipan las primeras catas, entrega un tinto denso, refinado que mantiene una magnífica tensión mineral.

Opinión de los críticos
The 2019 Potensac is a blend of 47% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, harvested from the 21st of September to the 9th of October. The alcohol came in at 14.05% with a pH of 3.54 and an IPT of 74. It is aging in French oak barriques, 34% new. With a deep purple-black color, the nose hits the ground running with lively scents of black raspberries, warm cassis and redcurrant jelly plus suggestions of garrigue, tilled soil, unsmoked cigars and pencil shavings. The medium to full-bodied palate is positively invigorating, offering bags of crunchy black and red berry flavors and a racy line of freshness, framed by approachable, grainy tannins and finishing with a skip in its step. In a word: FUN!
Excellent Potensac with a creamy and tight tannin structure. Blueberries and blackberries with some salt and minerals at the end. Classic structure. One of the best ever.
Elegance and classicism , really feel that you are in good hands in a great claret property. The fruit is ripe and yet fresh, there are quite a lot of tannins that come in on the finish, along with an earthy unfusiness. This is enjoyable, it's closed and should remain so for the next three to four years. The 2018 will give more immediate pleasure, but this will amply reward just a little more patience. 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend. Drinking Window 2024 - 2040.
