Chateau Potensac 2013 CBS
Deep ruby; tight rim- can lay for some years from now. Pretty rose tones—a good fruit profile with a fresh raspberry, strawberry, mint and tobacco scented bouquet. The nose reflects the palate with excellent weight, concentration and density for the class. Dry tannins are well balanced and ageing well. Some complexities from the mix of varietals from 46% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 2% Carmenere, and 1% P Petit Verdot. High-quality, fruity vintage for Potensac. Classic Bordeaux four-square style; 13.5% ABV. Good scores: 91WE, DD92, 90 Falstaff. A charming medium-bodied bottle which drinks on and on.
Voss from Wine Enthusiast writes, 'One of the showpieces of the Médoc, this structured and firm wine has strong Cabernet flavours that give dry tannins and juicy black currant fruits. Still youthful, this balanced wine is likely to age well. Drink from 2018.'
