Reviews of purchase Chateau Potensac, Medoc AOC Cru Bourgeois, 2010
Wine rich ruby-purple color.
The wine has a voluminous, soft, elegant taste with generous fruit flavors of black currant and blackberry notes of violets and a very long finish.
Magnificent aroma of the wine reveals notes of red fruit, cherry, damp earth, cedar and nuances of strawberry liqueur.
Wine matches perfectly with grilled meat, is also recommended to serve it with game, poultry, veal in Bordeaux, truffles, pate and cheese.
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 from 2005 vintage blend of the first wine farm - "Chateau Potensac" - has been slightly modified in favor of Merlot.
