A bit of a vegetal nose from the bottle but this quickly dissipated in the glass. Lots of fruit, nice balance but lacking length. I'm happy that I still have a few bottles. A nice easy drinking wine.
External Reviews for Château Potensac
The 1989 Potensac is a big, intense, alcoholic wine with exceptional ripeness, full body, and a long, chewy, fleshy finish. Anticipated maturity: Now-1999.
Potensac's 1990 is almost as good as their 1989. It is deeply colored, with plenty of body, an attractive, pure, curranty, earthy nose, medium to full body, a classic structure, and a long finish. Drink this impressive wine over the next decade.
Firm and well-done, with focused berry and mineral character throughout. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine and sleek tannins and a long, racy finish. From Jean-Hubert Delon of Las Cases. Best after 2006.
Eine klassische, strenge Aromatik offenbart sich in der Nase: Gewürze, vegetabile Noten wie auch Waldbeeren und Unterholz. Dieser Aromaeindruck bestätigt sich im Gaumen, wo sich eine Struktur von weichen, samtigen, aber präsenten Gerbstoffen mit der entsprechenden Fruchtsäure manifestiert. Das Finale ist anhaltend, typisch, gradlinig und klassisch.
(Barrel tasting) Racy. Ripe plum, with plenty of tobacco. Medium- to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish.
Good medium ruby-red. Slightly medicinal aromas of blueberry, dark chocolate and game, with a liqueur-like exotic quality. Tightly wound and penetrating; in a rather brutal stage today, and not showing the lushness or sweetness of the vintage. Finishes firmly tannic, with a note of licorice.
In my report on the 2000 vintage in issue #146 (dated 4-23-03), I forgot to include my review of the 2000 Potensac. It is a beautiful sleeper of the vintage. Rich and concentrated, it may be the finest Potensac since the 1982.
