- Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Lisa Perrotti-Brown: "Blended of 44% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Potensac features chocolate box and Sichuan pepper scents with a core of cassis, warm blackberries, kirsch and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, it has a great core of expressive black fruits, grainy tannins and lovely freshness, finishing with a red fruit lift."

- WINE ENTHUSIAST, Roger Voss: "This ripe wine offers structure from the Cabernet in the blend but also rich berry fruits with just a hint of chocolate. Its density and acidity give a smooth as well as juicy aftertaste."

- VINOUS, Neal Martin: "The 2016 Potensac contains earlier-picked Merlot and later-picked Cabernet, according to the estate. It offers blackberry, sous-bois and crushed stone on the nose, the new oak (one-third) finely integrated and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin and a fine bead of acidity, delivering a mixture of red and black fruit and a lightly spiced, almost gentle finish of satisfying length. I appreciate the nonchalant, easygoing nature of this Potensac, which should give immense pleasure over the next 15 to 20 years."

- 92 Punkte VINOUS, Antonio Galloni: "The 2016 Potensac is a huge overachiever. Succulent black cherry, plum, spice, leather, licorice and lavender flesh out in this striking, deeply flavored Médoc. Inky, racy and super-expressive, the 2016 is a wine of pure and total seduction. Jean-Hubert Delon's entire portfolio is impressive in 2016, but the wines from Potensac are especially of note. Tasted two times."

- 93 Punkte FALSTAFF, Peter Moser: "Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, dezente Randaufhellung, mit feinen tabakigen Nuancen unterlegte schwarze Beerenfrucht, ein Hauch von Cassis, Mandarinenzesten unterlegt. Stoffig, rund und elegant, angenehme Extraktsüße, integrierte, tragende Tannine, würzig, zarter Nougat im Nachhall, hat Entwicklungspotenzial."

- DECANTER, Jane Anson: "This is such classic Médoc - the freshness is clear, perfectly underpinning the crunchy red and black berry fruits. It's super-seductive and easy to drink despite being closed right now, as you would expect at this stage, but the weight of tannins suggests that it will open back up fairly swiftly, and a second bottle I tasted was even more juicy. 2% Petit Verdot completes the blend. Drinking Window 2022 - 2036"

- JANCIS ROBINSON: "39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. 30% new oak.
Bright crimson. Racy and very rich and polished. Lovely tannins. Very juicy. Some tannin and potential underneath. Firm structure but no austerity."

- Rene Gabriels BORDEAUX TOTAL, Andre Kunz: "Kunz Fassprobe 17: (39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 55 hl/ha, 13.8% vol. Alkohol) Florales, kräftiges, süsses Bouquet, Cassis, Johannisbeeren, Holunder, rote Lakritze, Vanille. Seidener, duftiger, süsser Gaumen mit guter Frucht, feinsandigem Tannin, muskulöser Struktur, guter Aromatik, langer, leicht kerniger Abgang."

- JEB DUNNUCK: "Another sleeper is the 2016 Château de Potensac, which is 44% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, all aged 14 months in 30% new French oak. This beauty is upfront and ready to go, with a dark, rich bouquet of currants, unsmoked tobacco, graphite, and earth. With beautiful concentration and a layered, elegant texture, it?s one of those wines that has ample upfront appeal yet will keep for 15+ years."

- 94 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Suave aromas of cedar and fresh red flowers with a thread of ripe red berries and blackcurrants, mulberries, coal smoke and cool stones. The palate delivers a wealth of rich red-fruit flavors, framed in sleek tannins that build with precision and length. A class act. One of the best from here in the modern era. Try from 2023."
