Vineyards Chateau Potensak located on clay-gravel soils Ordonak commune in northern Medoc, and give the wine a much higher class than other vineyards in this part of the Medoc. First of all, this is due to the fact that the vine is cut badly, so she brings tiny grape harvest of the highest quality. In recent decades, a 53-hectare vineyard Chateau Potensak dominated Cabernet Sauvignon, which accounted for about 60% of the area, while the Merlot took 25% and Cabernet Franc - 15%. But with the purchase of new vines Merlot became dominant precisely this sort and 2005 vintage blend of the first wine farm - "Chateau Potensac" - has been slightly modified in favor of Merlot. Potensak Chateau belongs to the family Delon, which also owns the famous name Chateau Leovill in Las Kaz St. Julien and Château Nenin in Pomerol. Decent wine Chateau is an effort of Mr. Delon and his advisor - the famous Michel Rolland. Limited yields (35 hl / ha), controlled temperature fermentation, no filtering, processing egg white - these are just a few methods from the arsenal of Michel Rolland, allow you to create successful vintages "Chateau Potensak."
