The Donna Review

A nice bouquet to the nose. Quite fruity and has a slight kick to it. Maybe not my favourite in this price bracket, but definitely drinkable. Doesn’t have that mellow flavour of a Merlot. But is is consistent from the first sip to the last. We did decant this wine and left it to breath for around an hour.

Rating: 3.5/5

Man with no palate Review

Initial impressions are slightly disappointing. But as I drink more it gets better on each sip, it doesn’t loose any intensity as a

lot of wines do. It is not overly smooth, but it is smooth enough. I just wonder if this just needs a little bit more aging. For a wine under $40 this is not bad.

The young fine connoisseur

It is smooth but lacks flavour, but it doesn’t have a bad aftertaste. It is an old wine, maybe too old and wonder if this should be drunk earlier. Didn’t go too well with the spicy Indian dishes that we had, but would image it would be good with a steak.

Chapelle de Potensac Medoc 2017 Bottle label Description

Chapelle de Potensac was created and first sold by Jean-Hubert Delon with the 2002 vintage. This elegant, traditionally made second wine possesses beautiful balance founded on smoothness and freshness. Its terroir of fine gravel and clay sands can be found in various parts of Potensac’s historical terroir, on the edge of the village. The Chapel, reproduced on the bottle’s packaging, stands in the centre of the hamlet. It is characterized by the absence of its neo-Gothic bell tower. (provided by the Vineyards website)
