La Chapelle de Potensac - second wine estate Château Potansak, and although it is not as famous as his older brother Chateau Potensac , nevertheless "La Chapelle" often gets high marks from critics.

Worthy.", And the words " decanter ", named" La Chapelle de Potensac "" a good example of the style Medoc. " Wine storage capacity is 8-10 years.
Originally belonged to the family of Chateau Potansak LICARD, but it passed into the possession of the family after marriage Fields Delon Delon and daughter LICARD. It is worth mentioning that the name Delon much better known in the wine world. They also owns Chateau La Levil Kas St. Julien and Château Nenin in Pomerol. At Chateau Potansak produced two wines - Cru Bourgeois and La Chapelle de Potansak. This land is famous for its variety of local soil, and hence the varieties grown grapes here. Chateau Potansak in the production of wine should be very strict traditions of the Medoc, and the wine Château Potansak Cru Bourgeois has a very high potential for exposure. The average age of the vines is about 30 years, the wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Carmenere.
Potensaka vineyards are 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. This is due to the fact that the vine is cut badly, so she brings tiny grape harvest of the highest quality.
