1981 Delon Chateau Potensac Medoc

Wine Description

(From 1997 Vintage) A soft, cedary, herbaceous, but pleasant, round, elegant style of wine, with berry and red currant fruit, and a smooth finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2004 Vintage) "The estate, under the same ownership as Léoville-las-Cases in Saint-Julien, shows what can be achieved in the Médoc when care is taken. It is big, round, solid and structured, with complexity coming from dark, sweet fruits and new wood. It is rich and powerful, the aging potential showing from a core of dry tannin."

    (From 2000 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Classic cassis/cedar Medoc bouquet, quite dry and restrained. Fine fruit and good elegant wine, shows elegance, depth and finesse. Drink 2-10 years.
