Château Potensac: A Legacy of Exceptional Wines and Family Tradition
The wine exhibits a forward, fresh, and perfumed nose that opens nicely in the glass, revealing suggestions of black currants, chocolate, and spice with floral accents. It is impeccably balanced, round, fresh with a core of ripe, vibrant, and juicy fruit, accentuated by smooth, ripe, polished tannins. Well-crafted, the aromas are reflected on the palate and pleasantly echo on the finish.
