2005 Potensac, Médoc 12-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1535737 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Barrel Sample* This wine has fine tannins that are relatively soft, with good acidity and dryness. It's not powerful, but with its fine black currant flavor and ripe fruit it shows great style. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2006)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A superb value for Jean-Hubert Delon, the 2005 Potensac has a deep ruby/purple color, a classic bouquet of sweet red and black fruits, as well as gorgeous texture and purity. Medium-bodied and concentrated, this wine behaves like a Medoc cru classe. Moreover, it will age very well for 10-15 years. Very impressive! (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2008)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red. Very ripe, sweet aromas of plum, mocha and bitter chocolate. Unusually sweet and supple for this wine, with lovely depth and volume to its cassis and chocolate flavors. Very St. Estephe in style. Finishes powerful, sweet and long, with the unusually fine tannins arriving late. An outstanding performance for this chateau. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2008)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid purplish crimson. A little vegy but well judged and very good value. Solid but just coming round. Inner quote mark (1/2015)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Balanced and very pretty, with blackberry, licorice and currant aromas and flavors. Full body, firm tannins and a medium finish. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2008)
