Château Potensac Red Bordeaux Blend Médoc 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

"The dark plum/purple-tinged 2003 Potensac is a sleeper of the vintage.<br/>Sweet, exotic scents of mincemeat, black currants, cherries, and crushed rocks<br/>are followed by an elegant, fleshy, forward, delicious claret to enjoy over the<br/>next 5-7 years, although this wine has a tendency to last longer. It is one of<br/>the finest Potensacs produced in several years." Robert Parker - Wine<br/>Advocate - (Apr 06)

I just opened a bottle from my cellar to see where this wine is - still very youthful. Needs at least 2-3 more years to develop. That is not to say you cannot decant today and enjoy. A very balanced effort - great fruit showing through.

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.

Burgundy, FranceNicolas Potel Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Aux Echanges is a gorgeous red Burgundy certain to delight any lover of Pinot Noir. Maison Nicolas Potel was founded by Nicolas Potel in 1997 and is managed today in the spirit of its founder to source and vinify small lots of hand crafted wines from selected appellations throughout Burgundy's Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits. This first-growth Burgundy received 90-point ratings from both Wine & Spirits and Wine Spectator! The Wine Spectator review was written in April 2006: "A chunky, robust style, with dense tannins underlying the black cherry, chocolate and spice notes. It's concentrated, yet brooding, needing time to come together. Best from 2008 through 2015. 200 cases made." For us, this is a true wine gem!Nicolas Potel Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Aux Echanges is deep garnet red in color, medium-full in body, soft and velvety with silky tannins. It offers a beautiful nose and palate of black cherries, raspberries, earth, spice and mineral notes. The wine was aged in French oak barrels. Its elegant finish shows off the depth, length and earthy minerality reserved for great Burgundy.Enjoy Nicolas Potel Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Aux Echanges over the next 7-8 years with roast pork, grilled salmon, pasta, rich vegetable dishes, and aged cheeses.

One of the best Potensacs in many years this elegant 2003 boasts loads of black cherry and currant flavors with hints of damp earth and licorice. The wine is medium-bodied and relatively chunky with good flesh and intensity. It should drink well young yet age nicely for 7-8 years. This 2003 represents a fine value from one of the best run cru bourgeois estates. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
