The 2015 L'Acte 7 de G, the Guinadeau family's 7th wine from their property in Lalande De Pomerol, is soft, pliant and expressive. Sweet red cherry, plum and floral notes give the Acte 7 its distinctive enveloping personality. Massale selections from the family's Lafleur estate are playing an increasing role here. Needless to say, it will be interesting to see how things develop here in the coming years. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 G Acte 7 is a blend of 61% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Franc this year, the latter from a massale selection from Château Lafleur. However, Baptiste remarked that it was the Merlot that worked so well this year. It has a well-defined bouquet with wild strawberry and blackberry scents, touches of cold granite and smoke coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin, a fine line of acidity, a more elegant Acte G with a precise, lightly spiced finish. Give this 2-3 years in bottle and it should drink well for the next decade. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2028

61% Merlot picked 20-28 Sep and 39% Cabernet Franc picked 9 and 10 Oct. From mass selections from Ch Lafleur (same owners). Nervy and dense with real savoury excitement. Very sophisticated and rewarding - more structured than the Grand Village Rouge. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2030

The seventh vintage of the Guinaudeau family’s red blend comes from a “puzzle” of soils in Fronsac. It’s a wine that consistently outperforms its appellation. Finesse, sculpted tannins, lovely perfume and a lingering finish. Elegant winemaking at an approachable price. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2019-2026
