The second wine of Château Potensac, and under the same ownership as Château Léoville Las Cases, this is an impressive wine in its own right, packed with very ripe fruit, but still preserving the outline and structure of a solid Médoc. There is a wood element, but it is mainly the luscious black fruit that stands out in this wine. Imported by Diageo Chateau & Estates.
