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

The 2015 Acte 7 has a perfumed bouquet with pressed iris and violet infusing the black fruit, quite mineral-driven and focused, gaining intensity with aeration whilst retaining wonderful finesse. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, well judge acidity, hints of dark chocolate infusing the black fruit laced with truffle and a hint of liquorice. It fans out wonderfully towards the finish that has so much freshness, adorned with a long marine-influenced finish. The Acte 7 could be broached now although I would prefer to leave it another one or two years. Tasted at the Acte vertical in London. -- Neal Martin

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

(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
