Chateau Potensac 2000 and 2005

90 points

Medoc, Bordeaux.  13.5%

Firm, somewhat minerally claret.  This is Potensac in two very good vintages.  Good food wine.

Very similar wines, which is not surprising.  The extra 5 years has softened the 2000 and toned down the smidge of new oak.  Suggests to me that Potensac isn’t built for aging, certainly it holds itself together comfortably but doesn’t gain anything much from cellaring.  The winemakers didn’t intend this wine to evolve in bottle much.
