Vintage 1999 with its characteristic "Chateau Potensac" soft young tannins that will reveal and show the whole maturity of taste after a minimum of 10 years. His charming first notes have a sweet fruity flavor. Wine of the year very well balanced in terms of acidity and saturation. It gives reference vintages of 1996 and 2000, but still at a high level - a great both young and mature. An hour before feeding drink should be decanted and poured into a decanter.
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 variety and the year 2005 the first wine blend of economy - "Chateau Potensac" - has been slightly modified in favor of Merlot.
