Château Potensac 2021

A fresh and precise Médoc red wine

The estate

Situated in the north of the Médoc, to the west of the Bordeaux region, Château Potensac has belonged to the same family for many generations. This estate has always been handed down from mother to daughter. Today, Jean-Hubert Delon, the grandson of Georgette Liquard, is entrusted with driving forward the influence of this château, which is regarded as an iconic reference among fine wines in the northern Médoc region.

The vineyard

Château Potensac 2021 is a Médoc wine made from a 40-hectare vineyard located in the heart of the appellation. The vines are 45 years old on average and are located on clay and gravel hillsides upon limestone subsoil which gives the wine its minerality, tension and freshness.

The vintage

The 2021 vintage is marked by shifting climatic conditions that impacted the vineyard’s growing cycle. The estate's teams have increased their efforts in order to preserve the vineyard’s healthy condition and to harvest each grape variety at optimum maturity. The grape harvest, which took place from September 29th to October 14th, revealed powerful and complex Cabernets and fresh and full-bodied Merlots grapes.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (40%)

Merlot (34%)

Cabernet Franc (23%)

Petit Verdot (3%).
