PRODUCT REVIEWS

Affordability continues from the Médoc with the release of Château Potensac, the "unbeatable value" option from the Domaines Delon stable - you may know that name as they also own King of the Super Seconds Château Léoville-Las-Cases, and here we have an equally classic style of claret. This merlot-led Grand Vin has always shown tremendous value in a sub-£20 bottle of authentic Left Bank craft. In a fresh, tightly-textured style, its palate has power and purity with dense tannins and spice on a gratifying finish. This is "proper Médoc" yet its 44% merlot make it much, much more approachable these days than in the past, so while it will happily supervise your cellar visits for a good 10 15 years, it will be ready to deliver drinking pleasure in only 5-7 years

Critic reviews:
"This kicks off at a high intensity and manages to deliver both concentration and freshness. Juicy and easy to approach and will easily last 10 years. Has charm and appeal, and a sappy delivery of cassis and bilberry fruits. Oldest vines on this estate are around 100 years old..."
92 points, Jane Anson, Decanter

"The 2020 Potensac was picked September 1430 and matured in 20% new oak. It has a clean, pure black currant and blueberry nose, a little more opulent than usual, but well defined and demonstrating a bit more fruité, which it has occasionally lacked in some vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, and quite saline on the entry, with touches of black olive infusing the black fruit. A midweight with a lively, classically fashioned finish, this is a very commendable Potensac that should give 1215 years of pleasure, but warrants 34 years in a cool, damp cellar."
90-92 pts. Neal Martin, www.vinous.com
