Tasting Note:

The young Bouchet vines (a massale selection from Chateau Lafleur) were hit hardest by the frost. As a result, the 2017 Acte is 100% Merlot. Taking out such a vital part of this wine's DNA is bound to have an effect. It loses that wonderful aromatic profile that the Bouchet provides, but it gains an even more seductive texture. This is less of a Lafleur sibling and more akin to the great Merlot dominated wines from the limestone plateau of St Emilion. Mineral infused Merlot fruit, quite forward and very alluring. The profile is so refined and polished, waves of effortless well delineated cherry and damson coat the palate. This is super stylish and delicious.
