Wine Description

The 2005 Potensac has a deep ruby/purple color, a classic bouquet of sweet red and black fruits, as well as gorgeous texture and purity. Medium-bodied and concentrated

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Plump, tender texture carries lively fruit flavors of wild cherry, strawberry and cassis in this lively red. Notes of fresh herb and licorice add interest. Modestly structured, with fresh acidity and just enough tannins.

    Expert Ratings Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 90 points Wine Spectator: 88 points Rated: 90 by Stephen Tanzer, May/Jun 08 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Medium red. Very ripe, sweet aromas of plum, mocha and bitter chocolate. Unusually sweet and supple for this wine, with lovely depth and volume to its cassis and chocolate flavors. Very St. Estephe in style. Finishes powerful, sweet and long, with the unusually fine tannins arriving late. An outstanding performance for this chateau.
