Château Potensac -Subskription 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit astringent on the nose with notes of iron and toasted oak accenting the slightly roasted black cherry fruit. Soft and silky on entry this shows of some crisp tannins with a savory edged core of bitter cherry fruit. There’s good complexity here and the fruit powers right through the bright finish. Nice depth and complexity, certainly not the best wine here but one that is ready and delicious. 88pts

Herbaceous and earthy with notes of blond tobacco, subtly sweetly fruited – a bit soft up front, nice purity to the mineral tinged black currant fruit, a bit simple but fullish and savory, slightly dry finish (85-86)

Reticent, dried shoe leather, small red currant fruit, Sweeter, fuller, richer maybe even texturally fresher than the 82 but the fruit is less ripe, less intense, quite earthy and briary on the finish, good length though, more rustic than 82 but almost as good 87pts

Spicy, leathery, sweet oxidation, bit of crushed rock, lovely spice tones, vibrant if aged, dried berry – sweet leading edge, plenty of acid, resolved tannins, nice core of red fruit still here, nice balance, a small wine, nice follow through though with rich red fruit, more strawberry than currant,. Very much at the end of its plateau of maturity but still able to provide pleasure. Shows a touch of falling apart on fini. 88pts

Notes of sour cherry, cedar shanks, plum and blackberry on the nose - very Medoc. Entry is smooth, with degrading, silky oak and rich Cabernet Sauvignon cassis predominating. Finish is quite long and satisfying, if just a tad sour. Ready now; holding is not required for improvement. Good value. 88 points

tasted 4/2012, Probably could use a bit more cellar time, but very french (i,e, subtle) but presents with lovely fruit and sublime finish once it has enough air.

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.

A wine with blueberry and violet character on the nose and palate. Citrus rind too. Intense. Very well done. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Poujeaux 750ml

A sleeper of the vintage, this blend of 52% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc exhibits outstanding ripeness (13.5% alcohol) as well as a deep ruby/purple color and excellent notes of crushed rocks, red and black currants, licorice...

Lively, tangy style, with currant and pomegranate notes and nice floral lift on the finish. A touch crisp but should soften enough with the élevage.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Potensac 750ml

Firm tannins a wine with a solid structure the weight packed tightly into its firm structure. Concentrated tannins are very present while still fruity. Wine Enthusiast.

Very primal, with cassis and violet running from start to finish, backed by a lightly chalky, slightly tight finish. Shows the austere side of the vintage, but has admirable length. Tasted non-blind. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Potensac 1500ml
