Reviews for 2009 Potensac Bordeaux Blend

JS 92
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
Blueberry and blackberry with hints of sliced mushrooms. Full body with velvety tannins and a soft textured finish. Best Potensac in years. Better in 2015.

Shows smoky new wood and black currant fruit. This is a structured wine powerful while preserving just the right balance of acidity. It's dark and dense in character yet with great freshness.

Dark purple-tinged ruby. Initially reticent nose opens with air to reveal cabernet franc-driven strawberry violet cocoa and mineral aromas. Then broad and chunky in the mouth with red berry and black cherry flavors... Dark purple-tinged ruby. Initially reticent nose opens with air to reveal cabernet franc-driven strawberry violet cocoa and mineral aromas. Then broad and chunky in the mouth with red berry and black cherry flavors complicated by a welcome element of minerality. Became increasingly graceful with air finishing long and vibrant with very fine tannins. Deeper and more complex than usual for this wine and a great success of the vintage. This wine avoids the excessive ripeness of many other '09s.
