    Wine Advocate Notes
    90 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blended of 44% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Potensac features chocolate box and Sichuan pepper scents with a core of cassis, warm blackberries, kirsch and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, it has a great core of expressive black fruits, grainy tannins and lovely freshness, finishing with a red fruit lift." 11/18
    Neil Martin Notes
    "90-92 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""The 2016 Potensac is a blend of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, cropped at 55 hectoliters per hectare between 5 and 19 October (11 days of picking), then matured in 30% new oak. Jean-Hubert Delon told me that his team was selective in the winery and so the Grand Vin only comprises 55% of the total production. It actually shares the potent marine/estuarine influence of the Chapelle de Potensac, plenty of black fruit here, maybe a little rustic but with plenty of character. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite linear at first, opening nicely in the mouth to reveal a spicy and lively middle and finish. This has a little more panache than the 2015 Potensac, more detail towards the finish, and it should give plenty of drinking pleasure over the next decade or more."" 4/17 "
    Antonio Galloni
    89-92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2016 Potensac bristles with energy. Bright aromatics, mouthwatering acidity and finely sculpted fruit elevate the 2016 to a lofty position among the best wines in its class. Graphite, crushed rocks, lavender, blue/purplish fruit and exotic flowers abound in this tasty, midweight Médoc from Jean-Hubert Delon." 4/17
    James Suckling Notes
    "93-94 Points, James Suckling: ""What a racy and focused Potensac with wonderful density and finesse as well as a firm and polished tannins that hold the whole thing together. A beautiful, reasoned young red. One of best Potensacs in a long time."" 4/17"
    Wine Spectator Notes
    88-91 Points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "Lovely cherry paste and cassis flavors are fresh and open, backed by light plum pit and chalk notes that impart focus on the finish. Nicely done." 4/17
    Wine Enthusiast Notes
    "90-92 Points, Wine Enthusiast: ""With its fine tannins and ripe fruit aromas and flavors, this wine brings out all the elements of the vintage: great structure and great fruit. It's not a powerful wine, but is stylish and likely to be ready to drink within 10 years."" 4/17 "
