Château Potensac is located on the ground of the Haut-Médoc in the Médoc. Although there are numerous Médoc wines with a higher quality than the Haiut-Médocs, Potensac is a striking example of this. This wine is therefore made by Michel Delon of Leoville las Cases in St. Julien. Due to the various extensions, the pointed church in the hamlet of Potensac belongs to the domain. The Chappele de Potensac is the 2nd wine of this Chateau.
Owner Jean-Hubert Delon inherited Chateau Potensac from his grandmother Georgette Liquard and, in addition to Château Leoville Las Cases in Saint-Julien and Château Nénin in Pomerol, acquired a beautiful domain.
Château Potensac was the only AC Médoc to have the status of Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel until this classification was abolished in 2007. The domain is located in the north of the Médoc on a high point on a limestone soil covered with siliceous clay, similar to that of Saint-Estephe. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc canes grow up to 80 years old in this special terroir and still produce perfectly ripe and healthy grapes. Château Potensac is a powerful, rich wine and is considered by many to be a classic example of a Médoc.
