For the last wine-tasting in Lausanne we had 3 white wines :
- Les Genêts, Damine Laureau 2004 (served with Foie gras and onion marmelade)

- Coume Marie, La preceptorie de Centernach 2007 (Poached egg, carott cream and smoked duck breast)

- Côte de Beaune, Joseph Drouhin 2008 (Tuna confit, lobster pressed juice)


And 3 red wines :

- Chateau Potensac 2002 (Sirloin made as a kebab, red pepper and herb sauce)

- Mas Daumas Gassac 1996 (Linguine with a reduced parmeggiano and truffle cream)

- Vieilles Vignes, Domaine de la Monardière 2005 (Panna Cotta with red fruits and speculoos)

Let's speak about the red... 




CHATEAU-POTENSAC-@g-105601Appellation : Médoc

 Varietal : Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc

Region : Bordeaux


COLOUR : Deep red black

NOSE : Black cherries, blackcurrant, spices

PALATE : Black fruits, undergrowth. It is very expressive, the tannins are nicely covered





Like Sociando-Mallet (for example) is yet another chateau which illustrates the defunct nature of the 1855 classification of Bordeaux. Potensac regularly turns out wines of classed growth quality, but has only a Cru Bourgeois designation.Most of people like this wine 5experts and novice) because of course it is good but easy to understand.
