Product description
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate     The 2012 Potensac surpassed my expectations because it has developed more flesh to counterbalance those prenatal hard tannins. It has an attractive if unspectacular raspberry, strawberry and tobacco-scented bouquet, quite closed at first, opaque, but opening with several minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe blackberry fruit laced with tobacco and sea salt. I appreciate the finish here. There is satisfying substance, a gentle grip and a classic pencil lead, almost Pauillac-like finish. Enjoy this upstanding Médoc from Jean-Hubert Delon over the next 10-12 years.

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast     One of the showpieces of the Médoc, this structured and firm wine has strong Cabernet flavours that give both dry tannins and juicy black currant fruits. Still youthful, this balanced wine is likely to age well.
