Reviews for 2010 Potensac Bordeaux Blend

WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
Very primal with cassis and violet running from start to finish backed by a lightly chalky slightly tight finish. Shows the austere side of the vintage but has admirable length. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, June 2011
A ripe wine keeping great swathes of freshness and offering the most delicioys acidity. Such a fresh wine full of great blackberry fruist very fresh as well as dense.

A blend of 48% Merlot 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc with 7.3% vin de presse delivering 13.9% alcohol this has a ripe blackberry nose with raspberry kirsch a touch of cassis and cedar all cloaked in warm alcohol. The palate is full-bodied with ripe slightly chewy tannins very good weight certainly more complexity that recent vintages well defined towards the finish and coping with that alcohol adeptly. This is a better Potensac than in recent years but still a little "conservative" in style.

This is one of the fruitiest Potensacs that I remember with loads of blueberry and currants. Full and velvety. Plenty going on underneath.

Spring flowers blackberry and spice appear on the nose with underlying loamy clay and fresh turned earth rounding out the complex aromas. The palate is juicy and plump with plus concentration of ripe black fruit showing glycerol richness on the mid-palate. A fine grip of broad-shouldered tannins match perfectly with the freshness of medium-to-high acid and ripe fruit.
