Straight away on the nose you feel that there is something special going on here. Massal selection from old Cabernet Franc vines has produced an impressively tight wine, the tannins finely structured and plentiful. It subtly builds up layers across your palate, and while it will take some time to soften, the grip and balance tells you it's going to be worth the wait. Proof that it's worth looking for the treasures lurking within the Bordeaux Supérieur appellation. Drinking Window 2020 - 2032

Blended of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc, the medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Guinaudeau G Acte 7 opens with gorgeous plum preserves, spice cake and oolong tea notes with hints of kirsch, blueberry preserves and Sichuan pepper plus a waft of potpourri. The palate is medium to full-bodied and very firm, with wonderfully fine-grained tannins and impactful freshness and tension, finishing long. This needs time! -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

(89-91) The 2015 L'Acte 7 de G, the Guinadeau family's 7th wine from their property in Lalande De Pomerol, is soft, pliant and expressive. Sweet red cherry, plum and floral notes give the Acte 7 its distinctive enveloping personality. Massale selections from the family's Lafleur estate are playing an increasing role here. Needless to say, it will be interesting to see how things develop here in the coming years.

(17/20) 61% Merlot picked 20-28 Sep and 39% Cabernet Franc picked 9 and 10 Oct. From mass selections from Ch Lafleur and Ch Grand Village (same owners). Nervy and dense with real savoury excitement.

Nervy and dense with real savoury excitement. Very sophisticated and rewarding - more structured than the Grand Village Rouge. -JR
