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%.
