Reviews:

"Very pretty blackberry and currant aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a silky finish. Nicely done. Best after 2009." -Rated 88, Wine Spectator

"The dark plum/purple-tinged 2003 Potensac is a sleeper of the vintage. Sweet, exotic scents of mincemeat, black currants, cherries, and crushed rocks are followed by an elegant, fleshy, forward, delicious claret to enjoy over the next 5-7 years, although this wine has a tendency to last longer. It is one of the finest Potensacs produced in several years." -Rated 89, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Full red-ruby. Aromas of ripe plum, cedar and tar; superripe without being liqueur-like. Silky, fat and full, with atypical volume for this wine. There's enough healthy acidity here to give shape and freshness to the wine. Finishes with broad tannins that reach the sides of the mouth. It's hard to imagine a stronger vintage for this chateau." -Rated 89, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
