  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 91-93

    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. Tasted twice with consistent notes, though the wood came through more at the château compared to another at Boissenot's tasting. Drink 2026-2042

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 89-91

    Aromas of dark berries, cigar wrapper and licorice introduce the 2022 Potensac, a medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy Médoc with a deep core of fruit and powdery structuring tannins. It's built along similar lines to the 2020.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 91-93

    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. Drink 2027-2042.

  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 90-92

    An impressive showing from the Delon stable, it unfolds with lovely perfumed, ripe wild damsons and blackcurrants, with dashes of spice and slate. On the palate it is very well judged with a supple concentration of juicy flavours which echo the nose. The fine powdery tannins, so welcome in this vintage, are evident, but well integrated. This is one of the biggest Potensacs of recent years.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 94-95

    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.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 90-92+

    The 2022 Château Potensac is based on 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and a splash of Petit Verdot. It has lots of ripe blue fruits, graphite, and gravelly earth to go with full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. It's a big, rich, tannic Potensac that's going to be long lived. I suspect 3-5 years of bottle age will be warranted here.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 18+

    This is a thrilling wine with a joyous nose and masses of red fruit highlights. Late rainfall in September refreshed the vines, and this meant that it powered up their batteries, allowing them to load incredible intensity and freshness into its two Cabernet components. The tannins are incredible, and the length of flavour is also sensational. This is the finest young Potensac I have tasted, and it will have a stunning life ahead of it. Returning to my glass, this is such a complex wine with fascinating amplitude and incredible freshness. This is a freak Potensac deserving of the efforts put in during the heroic vintage.

Producer

Château Potensac

Belonging to the Delon family, proprietors of Léoville Las Cases, Château Potensac is a cru bourgeois located in the northern Médoc. Planted on gravel and limestone soils. Potensac is notably mineral, which expresses itself mostly in drier vintages when the roots delve deep for water.

Region

Médoc

The Médoc takes its name from the Latin phrase ‘medio aquae' (between the waters)- referring to the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a long, narrow vineyard area that stretches north-west from the city of Bordeaux along the left bank of the Gironde estuary. The water masses that surround the Médoc act as a heat-regulator and provide an ideal microclimate for viticulture. The well-draining gravel soil accentuates the near perfect growing conditions for the main grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The Médoc is the most famous red wine making region in Bordeaux and possibly the world.
