Tasting Note:

Produced from 56% Merlot and 44% Cabernet Franc from this south facing limestone and clay slope in the commune of Fronsac. The 6th vintage from this Guinaudeau estate probably has the clearest expression of fruit. Actes 1 and 2 hailed from the great vintages of 2009 and 2010, and while this doesn't possess the same power or density as those wines, it more than makes up for it with purity and precision of fruit. Crème de mûre and wild bramble on the nose with hints of coffee, earthy mineral notes and cocoa nibs. The fruit is very taut, bursting with bright cranberries and blood orange. Cabernet Franc really comes to the fore and lends wonderful aromatics, freshness, verve, a sweet spice character as well as structural complexity. This is powerful and impressive in an understated way.
