2000 Potensac, Médoc
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
It is a beautiful sleeper of the vintage. Rich and concentrated, it may be the finest Potensac since the 1982. (RP)
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Good medium ruby-red. Slightly medicinal aromas of blueberry, dark chocolate and game, with a liqueur-like exotic quality. Tightly wound and penetrating; in a rather brutal stage today, and not showing the lushness or sweetness of the vintage. Finishes firmly tannic, with a note of licorice. (ST)
Firm and well-done, with focused berry and mineral character throughout. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine and sleek tannins and a long, racy finish. From Jean-Hubert Delon of Las Cases. Best after 2006. (JS)
Very deeply colored. Red fruit aromas and black raspberry flavors. Very well-balanced wine with excellent concentration. Definitely a bargain. This property is owned by the Delon family (Léoville-Las-Cases) and is a powerful wine that will outlive most all wines in its class.
