Chateau Potensac Medoc 2016


The 2016 Potensac is a huge overachiever. Succulent black cherry, plum, spice, leather, licorice and lavender flesh out in this striking, deeply flavored Medoc. Inky, racy and super-expressive, the 2016 is a wine of pure and total seduction. Jean-Hubert Delon’s entire portfolio is impressive in 2016, but the wines from Potensac are especially of note.
