2020 Château Potensac, Cru Bourgeois Médoc

Château Potensac is always a favourite here at Lay & Wheeler. A cool terroir at the north of the Médoc produces a classically styled claret that punches well above its price point, and that ages beautifully. The 2020 is a beauty. Cool fruit and a gravelly texture mark out a brilliant value left bank Bordeaux. Excellent.
