Located in the far north of the Médoc, this highly sought Cru Bourgeois was transformed into a high quality estate by Léoville-Las-Cases’ Michel Delon, who took over this 50 hectare property in the 70s. He took Potensac ever forward until his death in 2000, when his equally-innovative son Jean-Hubert took over at the helm. Pierre Rolland, brother of legendary oenologist Michel, assists with the winemaking. The vines are planted in a mix of alluvial gravel and red clay and are an average age of 35 years. Cabernet Sauvignon dominates plantings with 60%, followed by 25% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. All grapes are hand picked, with fermentation carried out in a combination of concrete and stainless steel. 20% of the wine is aged in new barriques.
