Château Potensac on Snooth

  • Potensac 2005

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a deep, inky purple at the center, with bright ruby along the edges. The nose presents aromas of leather, tar, blackberry and kirsch with just the faintest floral overtones. The taste brings out the gravelly clay soils of the Garonne, but the fruit is still a major player with flavors of black cherry and plum, but the star is the m... Read More

  • Chateau Potensac Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This Medoc can take on quite a few more years, but, like the French, I like power, and this wine has exactly that: there is ample (more than ample, if you are North American) oak, but there is also deep Cabernet Sauvignon fruit - if just a teensy weensy bit green. Tannic with that pucker on the mouth, there is the usual fut de chene flavour, but... Read More

  • Potensac Médoc Cru Bourgeois Supérieur Primeurwijnen Bordeaux 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The first Poujeaux that has slipped by the tonsils this year and it seems the very opaque, sang d'homme colour makes good its hedonic promise; the nose is blackberry, menthol and beet followed by a mature, balanced cedar plank, blackberry and vanilla entry. Very satisfying and ready to drink now, though can be cellared for a few more years. 8... Read More

  • Potensac X Owc 2008

    Snoothrank:

    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 Read More

  • Some Bordeauxish options:La Parde de Haut-Bailly is about $20 in France, less in Switzerland (!), more in the States. 2nd wine of the Chateau, which has improved quite a bit in recent years.Chateux Teyssier (St. Emilion), Olivier (Pessac-Leognan) and Potensac (Medoc) can still be found under $30, if not $20 anymore. Oliver's white is also excell... Read More

  • Château Potensac Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel 1996

    Snoothrank:

    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 flav... Read More

  • Chateau Potensac Cru Bourgeois Exceptionne Medoc Cl 1986

    Snoothrank:

    ash, burnt, charred, bit musty, soft, fair amount of black currant fruit, front loaded, not a lot of follow through, some length, flat and clumsy, a very chunky style yet its really soft 80pts Read More

  • Château Potensac Médoc Château Potensac Tinto 1983

    Snoothrank:

    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 Read More
