The first vintage made from 100% Merlot presents leaf, tobacco, and red fruits. Forward, round and supple, you may drink this sweet cherry and licorice-filled wine upon release. Due to the frost, the production is under 250 cases this year – a typical vintage is 1,500! The ninth vintage of this wine, “G” Acte 9, takes its name from Guinaudeau as in Jacques and Sylvie, the renowned owners.

Sweet ripe, earthy plums with a tint of tobacco open the medium-bodied wine. On the palate, the wine is elegant, fresh, bright and fruity. There is sweetness to the earthy, cocoa tinged berries and a tobacco leaf nuance that adds complexity in the finish. I like this now, and it is going be even better with a few years of aging.

Acte 8, the eighth vintage of this wine which takes its name from the first letter of the famous owner’s last name, Jacques and Sylvie Guinaudeau, who also own Chateau Lafleur in Pomerol is ready to go. The blend of 52% Merlot and 48% Cabernet Franc has a pronounced amount of Cabernet Franc in the blend. Dark ruby in color, licorice, truffle, and black cherry scents kick off the wine. Lushly textured, fat, and juicy, with a sweetness and vibrancy to its character, ends with pure, black cherries and lift in the endnote. A few years of age will be needed to soften the tannic structure and open its complexities.

Acte 5, the fifth vintage from Jacques Guinaudeau and Sylvie Guinaudeau, who also own Chateau Lafleur in Pomerol. In 2013 they produced a wine focused on its red fruit character, coupled with floral and thyme sensations. Lightly styled, with soft, crisp, bright strawberries and raspberry, this is already drinking well.
