Deep ruby, medium rim; the 2008 Potensac looks robust in the decanter with no sign of ageing. The first nose was of ripe, fresh blackcurrants, with other mixed, red fruits (from the 40% Cabernet Sauvignon mostly). Not plummy at all despite its 42% Merlot content, Chateau Potensac 2008 gives aromas of flowers, tea leaves and cool mint (from the Cab Franc of 18%). The palate is lightish with fresh cassis and cherry secondary to chewy tannins and minerality. The tannins are fairly smooth by now. Licoriced, finishes with a hint of spice and dark chocolate of over 10 second fruit length. Structured, with classic Bordeaux wine tastes. A medium-rare sirloin on a hot grill would be the ideal combination.
