Chateau Potensac Medoc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Ch. Potensac lies in the Northern Medoc, an area renowned for structured wines<br/>that reward time in the cellar, and this is an extremely reliable and popular<br/>claret from the Leoville-Lascases team that won't break the bank. In years like<br/>2009 it has an extra punch, and the ripeness of the year shines through. This<br/>has typical blackberry fruit balanced by a fresh minerality and a well-defined<br/>structure around the sweet core. As always, this will age well, ideally wanting<br/>ten years or so to show its best. <br/>(Joss Fowler, BBR Fine Wine Sales)

A sleeper of the vintage, the 2009 is probably the finest Potensac ever made, eclipsing even the stunning 1982. This blend, dominated by both Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, hit 13.9% alcohol, but the pH is a normal 3.58. Dense, rich, and full-bodied ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Potensac 750ml

Known in the 14th century under the name of ôLa Salle de Poujeauxö, Château Poujeaux has belonged to the Theil family since 1921. Jo Gryn of Gault- Millau magazine describes the wine as follows: ôAn authentic aristocrat among the great wines of the Médoc, a great growth disguised as a Cru Bourgeoisö. The château has long had an excellent reputation based on its virtual obsession with quality. Poujeaux is always deep in colour, with a subtle bouquet and soft, silky tannin that is never aggressive even when the wine is young. Château Poujeaux is powerful, elegant, charming and well-balanced. The Theil family's policy is trying to always to improve their wine and to do justice to the estate's outstanding terroir. There is every reason to believe that this excellent estate is headed for an even brighter future
