Wild strawberry and raspberry preserve aromas make an impact on the nose that storms from the glass, a touch of pencil box in the background. The palate is well balanced with fine grain tannins, plenty of sappy red fruit that segues into darker fruit towards the strict finish. This is a "correct" Potensac, very linear in style with pleasing length. Drinking range: 2024 - 2044 Rating: 90-92 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Jun 2020)

These aromatics are very nuanced and deserve time, not impactful but intellectual. The palate is medium-bodied with fine but firm tannins. Very linear and correct in style, it feels fresh and sapid, though I would have liked more flair to show through on the saline finish. Still, I like the grip and I suspect it will give 25-30 years drinking pleasure. Drinking range: 2025 - 2050 Rating: 92-94 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Jun 2020)

Smart and sophisticated feel - with lovely spice and good acidity. Proper claret with bright fruit and lovely energy touch of graphite. This feels like a really smart Medoc. Super fine tannins too add a feint scratch on the juicy yet supple finish. Best yet from Melanie. Bravo!L&S(Jun 2020)

It does have angles and some shoulders - but the fruit is pretty - lots of mature cherry, some rose petals too - nice feel. This lacks the polish of some grander names not surprisingly, but is full of charm and spirit. A good effort give it 5 years at least. 52% Cabernet, 40 Merlot, 6 Petit Verdot & 2 Cabernet Franc.

Completely delicious. A suavely polished feel. Nice red fruit lift on the palate with darker softer flesh too adding complexity and good amplitude. Creamy tannins - then a touch reedy - in a good way adding a classic edge, a refinement. Very smart Cantmerle indeed. One to stuff in the cellar. On the finish it is that feel again that impresses - just enough very soft tannin.

Philippe Dambrine who runs this Medoc stalwart was keen to illustrate the evolution of the work here - constantly refining their processes and getting more detailed in the vineyards. The latest update thgis year has been the new pumps - for pump over that are much gentler on the juice. It is no longer a physical pump - now it is air that pushes the juice gently from the bottom to the top. If this 2019 is the result - then what a great investment!

Gradually unfurls with broody black fruit, mixed with Earl Grey and freshly rolled tobacco scents, tertiary in nature. Conversely the palate is brighter, equipped with a solid backbone and vibrant black fruit. What I appreciate is the slightly brittle texture towards the classically-styled finish.
