Served at room temp, which was off-putting from the start. Very typical Bdx profile with understated oak and fruits on the nose. Mid-palate offers softish tannins and moderate acidity. Finishes with length. Drink em if you have em. Represents good value from this region.

This was shockingly good. Way better than previous bottles that were a bit monolithic. Classic claret complexity, plenty of fruit, long and balanced.

15.5/20 (88/100)

Достаточно насыщенно, с характерной стилистикой, вполне зрело.

The color is a dark ruby red to dark plum. A very nice nose gives up currants, raisins and black raspberries. The mouth feel is a medium to full bodied with nice tannins. Good black cherries and vegetal notes come through and wet soil. I really like this Bordeaux and feel it is ready now, but can have another 10-12 years in bottle to help smooth out the tannins even though I like them now. This is 42% Merlot, 40% Cabernet, and 18% Cabernet Franc. VERY NICE!

Je voulais ouvrir mon premier 2008 du CV pour voir ce qu’ils ont dans le ventre. Agréablement surpris, je crois qu’il va s’agir d’un millésime tres classique, cigar, tabac blond, graphite, mine de crayon. Ce Potensac etait tres bien, belle finale, pour le prix d’antan rien à redire. Selon moi, ce millésime va ressemble à la trajectoire des 2001. Que j’apprécie beaucoup!

Lots of cassis and spice. Quite solidly made but still supple.

Really liked this wine! Full bodied with good tannins to help balance it out.

Very nice Bordeaux 2008. Small bouquet, nice fruit and small tannins. Went very well with barbecued veggies and grass fed steaks and frenched lamb ribs. 2008

Гранатовое. Зрелое. Сушеная черника, немного болг перца, кедр, табак, лакрица. Танин бархат. Тело среднее, кислотность ниже.
