Tasting Notes and Scores
This property (which borders Lafite, Mouton, and Pontet-Canet) is owned by the proprietors of Pichon-Lalande. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the 2000 is an elegant, nicely textured, smoky, sweet wine offering scents of caramels intermixed with black currants, cherries, cedar, and licorice. Supple-textured and lush, it should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years. A sleeper of the vintage.

Managed by the Pichon Lalande team nowadays. Powerfully fruity wine – more fruity than most of this type. Racy, elegant and flirtatious. Lovely texture and more approachable than most. If Potensac is masculine stereotype, this is certainly stereotypically feminine.
