The 2014 Acte 6 is clearly a level up on the nose compared to the Acte 5 with fine delineation: blackberry, hints of blueberry and crushed stone, very focused and delineated.

The 2014 Acte 6 is clearly a level up on the nose compared to the Acte 5 with fine delineation: blackberry, hints of blueberry and crushed stone, very focused and delineated. It is like a camera lens being adjusted so that the image becomes clear. There is just a bit more class and nobility. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fresh and vibrant with a harmonious smooth texture. I find the oak is very well integrated and the finish vivacious, detailed and demonstrating more tension than previous vintages. This is going to be fascinating to observe over the next few years. Superb. Tasted at the Acte vertical in London. -- Neal Martin

The 2014 G Acte 6 showed extremely well when I tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle, it has a compelling bouquet with cranberry, potpourri and light incense aromas, just a hint of bell pepper emanating from the Cabernet... The 2014 G Acte 6 showed extremely well when I tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle, it has a compelling bouquet with cranberry, potpourri and light incense aromas, just a hint of bell pepper emanating from the Cabernet Franc. The palate is medium-bodied with with firm tannin, superb salinity, fine focus and real precision on the (still) slightly chalky finish. This is well worth hunting down. Baptiste Guinaudeau told me that it is the first "Acte" that he is proud of, and I can understand why. -Neal Martin
