Description of Château Potensac Chapelle de Potensac 2015
Château Potensac Chapelle de Potensac 2015 (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot)
Producer: Château Potensac
Grapes: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot
Originally in the ownership of the Liquard family, Chateau Potensac came to the current proprietors with the marriage of Paul Delon to the Liquard's daughter. It is perhaps unsurprising that under the direction of the Delon family, responsibility having passed from Paul Delon and his wife to their son Michel Delon in the 1970s, that Potensac should prosper. The name of Delon is of course much better known for the ownership of more illustrious estates especially Léoville-Las Cases, in St Julien, but also Nenin, in Pomerol. Under the Delon family's tenure - today it is Michel's son Jean-Hubert that runs the business following the death of Michel in 2000 - there has been a refurbishment of the chai with new stainless steel fermentation equipment, and there is never any shortage of good quality barrels for the élevage; perhaps up to 30% is new first year oak, but the rest are trucked over from the aforementioned Léoville-Las Cases after seeing out one vintage there.More about the Winery
Reviews of Château Potensac Chapelle de Potensac 2015
I did not like the colour with these brown edges. However the taste was quite good. Light aromas of raisins. The Château Potensac Chapelle de Potensac is a well-bodied wine.
I had it with a birthday cake.
