Slightly disappointing. Ruby colored wine with lots of tobacco and odd spices on the nose. Very meaty and gamey on the palate with notes of cigar.

Nose and palate dominated by sour black cherries. Strong tannins and slightly bitter.

Medium red-ruby. Currant, mocha, tobacco, cedar, menthol and a whiff of smoky game on the expressive nose. Supple and broad, combining good volume for the vintage with rather cool flavors of black cherry, menthol and roasted herbs. This spreads out n... Stephen Tanzer. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Potensac 750ml

The history of Ch. Poujeaux can be traced back to the 16th century, when what was then called La Salle de Poujeaux was under the ownership of Gaston De L'Isle, who also owned Ch. Latour and built the impressive, turreted Ch. de la Rivière. This is a classically styled Bordeaux with dark fruit, nutty and spicy characteristics, and a long, dry finish.

Beeriges Bouquet mit Aromen von Kirschen, Walderdbeeren und Brombeeren, zeigt auch sanft röstige Holzfassnoten, im Gaumen mit Fülle und Kraft, schöne Aromenkonzentration, druckvoll, sehr beerig, im Abgang mit noch jugendlichen, sehr präsenten Gerbstoffen, muss noch reifen, langanhaltend mit deutlichen Holzfassnuancen.

Located in the Médoc appellation of Bordeaux, Ch. Potensac is proof again of the defunct nature of the 1855 classification. Potensac regularly puts out "classed" wine but maintains the label of "Cru Bourgeois". Some may argue that it's all for better to allow for accessibility.
