  • Another impressive showing, conveying the feminine side of Medoc terroir, lush and suave fruit draping a powerful frame of medium plus acid and medium tannin. Generous and long mouthfeel. Oak is still integrating and when it does this could become special. A decade or more from full maturity. This would hold its own in a flight of same vintage Fifth to Third Growths. Excellent QPR!

  • Brillant, limpide, couleur grenat profond avec reflets violets, ocelle légèrement teintée. Très lourd, larmes moyennes, rapides et fréquentes.
    Nez fin et élégant sur la cerise avec une pointe de fraise, des notions terriennes, l'eucalyptus, le tabac blond. Légèrement poivré et épicé avec une pointe de fruits noirs, thym.
    Attaque franche et puissante surs les fruits (cerises, groseilles rouges) laissant place à un milieu de bouche sur le tabac et l'eucalyptus. Fin de bouche sur la fraise. Belle acidité.
    Très longue finale tannique et persistante (14 Cds) ! Grande fraicheur exprimée. Sur la fraise.
    Potensac s'exprime avec le temps. Rien de plus vrai pour ce 2005. Fruits frais, puissance, élégance, remarquable équilibre. Une référence inégalée à Bordeaux.

  • Nigel's 40th Birthday celebrations (Cornwall): Last minute decision to open, so not decanted.

    Clear appearance, medium intensity, tawny in colour. Clean, pronounced, nose showing development. Medium acidity, medium body and medium length.

    Very simple, but pleasant wine that is definitely in its window of drinking now. Unfortunately it suffered by way of comparison alongside the other wines opened over the course of the evening.

  • Very nice wine. Very soft tannins and well integrated acidity. Not a long finish and I wished it had greater complexity but an enjoyable wine.

  • Excellent Bordeaux after it opened up. Needs to decant can't for at least an hour

    (Chateau Potensac Médoc) Gently perfumed and rather chalky character on the nose, with some certain appeal. A rather hard character on the palate, with very linear qualities to the texture, and a leaner substance than some wines, Nevertheless it is bright and nicely structured, and there is a juicy, sappy substance to it that suggests this may come around with time.
