Château Potensac 2014, Médoc

POTE030
A classic claret that really punches this vintage. From the same stable as Leoville Las Cases, this great value property is situated in the Northern Medoc close to Sociando Mallet. A very well made wine which when mature will repay big time.

Château Potensac

From the same stable as Léoville Las Cases, this property is run by Jean-Hubert Delon and is situated in the far north of the Médoc, close to Château Sociando Mallet, and it gets better every year.

Tasting Notes

A powerful, tannic structure supports a very impressive, fleshy cassis fruit with an excellent balancing freshness.

Food Matches

Delicious with grilled meats, especially rib eye, Chateaubriand or sirloin steak - plainly cooked and partnered simply. Also try it with beef casserole or roast chicken for a Sunday treat.

Press Comments

Spectator Life, 2019: the best Bordeaux wines to try this Spring - "I sometimes find Potensac in its youth to be rather hard work but this is so lovely, you could easily drink it now especially with a nice bit of lamb. This is a serious wine at a bargain price. If you like a classic Medoc, you will love this."
