Decanted for a bit. Retaining nice color, but clouded with fine sediment. Warm nose of red berry tart. Currant driven nose. Some chalky soil. Some tart cherry. Ends on dry rose petal. On the palate, the fruit remains very youthful. Tart red berry fruit with good acid and softening tannins. Currant, cherry and some rustic wild berry flavors. Loamy soil notes and some leather notes showing. Wonderful balance and the flavors coat the palate and linger long. Really nice and aging beautifully! 94 pts.

Das Bouquet ist klassisch: Gewürzaromen, herbale Noten, gepaart mit Leder, Tabak und Beerenfrucht. Diese Aromatik vermag sich bis ins lange anhaltende, konsistente Finale konsequent in Szene zu setzen. Samtige, reife Gerbstoffe treffen im Gaumen auf eine fruchtige Struktur, die diesem Gewächs ein Rückgrat und einen eigenen Charakter verleihen. Der Château Potensac verlangt nach einigen Jahren der Flaschenreife, um seine erstklassigen Anlagen voll zum Ausdruck bringen und dem Weingeniesser ein vollendetes Genusserlebnis vermitteln zu können.

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is the most amazing wine this estate has ever produced. It is rich and long-lived. It boasts a dark purple color, as well as sweet, earthy, black currant and cherry liqueur-scented nose. There is terrific fruit intensity and purity, as well as moderate tannin in the medium-bodied, impressively rich finish. This wine should drink well between 2002-2014. A sleeper of the vintage." (Robert Parker - Apr-1999)
