The estate's Grand Vin's vineyards are located west of Ordonnac village. Its rows of vines grow on a double thalweg of gravelly-clay. They produce a very fi ne wine with tight texture, great richness and wonderful freshness. On the palate, the wine is pure and powerful, the tannins dense and spicy, and the finish of great depth with glorious aromas. Because of these qualities, Château Potensac is often considered to represent the "pure Medoc style". It should be noted that Potensac was the only "Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel" of its appellation.

Wine AdvocateA major sleeper of the vintage, the 2012 Potensac is composed of 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by scents of dusty, earthy, black currant, black cherry, licorice and cedar characteristics. Medium-bodied, rich, fruity and lush, it was harvested between October 3-17, and achieved 13.5% natural alcohol. This cuvee is usually a great value, so consumers take note. The 2012 should last for 6-10 years.
