2022 Château Potensac En Primeur

2022 Château Potensac En Primeur, released for sale en primeur this morning, offered at £123 per six bottles in bond. 

"The 2022 Potensac has an intense bouquet with layered red and black fruit, cedar and light mint aromas. This is a Potensac with purpose. The palate is a little creamier than previous vintages on the entry, but then the tannic framework makes its presence felt. Firm grip, quite fresh and sappy with a fine thread of acidity maintaining poise. This is a superb Potensac.2026-2042. 91-93 points."  Neal Martin,, Apr '23

"The 2022 Potensac is super-expressive right out of the gate. Black cherry, plum, lavender, spice, and gravel are all beautifully delineated. Pliant and beautifully layered, the 2022 marries density and vibrancy to great effect.  There's quite a bit of tannin, but also enough fruit to balance things out. The 2022 is a serious Potensac, that is for sure. Once again, Jean-Hubert Delon and his team made a Médoc that overdelivers big time.2027 - 2042. 91-93 points."  Antonio Galloni,, Apr '23

"Polished and refined with a deep core of ripe berries with walnut undertones. Medium- to full-bodied with firm, velvety tannins and a lingering finish. Deep and complex.  94-95 points."  James Suckling, Apr '23

Offered en primeur, landing spring 2025.

Producer Profile

Château Potensac

Château Potensac is a Cru Bourgeois in the Médoc.  It was rated 'Exceptionnel' in the original 2003 Cru Bourgeois classification.  Potensac takes its name from the hamlet of Potensac.  Owned by the Domaines Delon (owners of Léoville Las Cases, Clos du Marquis and Nénin), the estate has been in the Delon family for many years. 

Château Potensac's vineyards extend mainly over hilly mounds with a limestone subsoil covered with clay and gravel outcrops containing a high proportion of gravel ("graves"). These limestone soils are very similar to those found in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. On this terroir, some plots of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc were planted over 80 years ago.
