Chateau Potensac 2007

This is the fourth 2007 Bordeaux that I've tried now, and so far, I see little need to purchase any more wines from this vintage - the subjects so far have been both too expensive (buying them here in Australia), and below par in terms of quality.  Chateau Potensac is a wine that I've followed for quite a few years, having tried their 1986, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006 and now their 2007.  Potensac is an excellent wine that is usually well priced too.  In short, I am a fan.  Their 2007 though, while not bad by any means, is the least impressive Potensac vintage I've tasted.  The aroma is of classic blackcurrants, with a peppery note.  The palate though, while pleasant, is short.  82 points.

Price: $48
