Bordeaux 2016: Acte and Grand Village
16 May 2017

Our outstanding value pick from 2016 is the magnificent Grand Village Rouge. This idyllic property on the outskirts of the Fronsac commune has produced an astonishing 2016. Hardly surprising when you consider the team behind the wine… the Guinaudeaus. All the investment and know-how from the iconic Pomerol estate, Chateau Lafleur, has helped raise the bar. Forget postcodes, the clay and ‘big limestone’ terroir in the hands of Jacques, Sylvie, Baptiste, Julie and team can produce something quite remarkable.

In truth, the whole Guinaudeau range was spellbinding, but the 2016 Grand Village has perhaps reached a new pinnacle. Although only 14% Cabernet Franc, this varietal speaks so clearly, with its intoxicating aromatic profile, tension and power. It is without question the benchmark vintage for Grand Village: both sumptuous and vital, juicy yet sophisticated, reserved and exuberant – a monumental wine.
