'The 2018 Chapelle de Potensac is bright, perfumed and very nicely lifted, with plenty of red berry, dried leaves and floral character. Silky and light on its feet, the Chapelle is a gorgeous, refined Left Bank red to drink over the next decade. There is lovely 2018 raciness to the fruit and impeccable balance to round things out. Drink 2023-2033.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 89/100 (Mar 2021)

'This has a ton of bright fruit and graphite. The extraction is not quite as effortless as at its sibling estate, Leoville Las Cases, with the tannins a touch weighty in this second wine but still with plenty of good fruit. Harvested 21 September to 13 October, yielding 49hl/ha. 40% of production went into this second wine. 3.57pH. Drinking Window 2022 - 2035.' – Jane Anson, Decanter, 89/100 (Apr 2019)

'Deepest cherry red. Nicely stony/dusty dark-red fruit. Juicy raspberry fruit, so lively and fresh. Deliciously approachable and still persistent. Super-fine tannins so it seems to be all fruit.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20 (Apr 2019)
