The 2015 Potensac is gorgeous. Dark red cherry, plum, spice, new leather and licorice abound in this racy, voluptuous Médoc from the Delon family. Dark red cherry, mocha, plum, spice and sweet floral notes grace the racy, silky finish. The 2015 is a lovely Potensac. The blend is 45% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Cabernet Franc.

The 2015 Potensac is a blend of 45% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Cabernet Franc that was cropped at 50 hl/ha, and raised in one-third new oak. There is a sense of airiness on the nose: small dark cherries, crème de cassis and crushed strawberry, pretty and nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied with edgy tannin, fresh and citrus in style, just a touch of reduction towards the finish, but they will blow off by the time it is in bottle. I would have just preferred more persistence on the finish, but otherwise this is a decent Potensac. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2030

Lots of mineral and stone aromas and flavors with blackberry and blueberry aromas. Full and very fine texture. Well made for the vintage considering the moisture in Northern Médoc. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

An austere style, offering a frame of warm stone around the core of currant and bitter cherry flavors, with tangy minerality through the finish. Perhaps not as broad as some of its peers, but with good cut, drive and focus. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc (old vines). One-third new oak. Savoury and polished. Lots of personality. Quite marked acidity on the end - too concentrated perhaps? 13.32%. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2021-2028

Concentrated cassis fruit – more class than expected, and will show very well. The best Beaumont so far. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2020-2030

One of Jean-Hubert Delon’s favourite tricks is to slip Potensac into blind tastings, such is its ageing potential. This is more forward than some recent vintages, with supple tannins, grassy fruit and well integrated tannins, but could still surprise a few people. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2025
