Antonio Galloni

The 2016 Acte 8 is fabulous. The 2016 literally soars out of the glass with a stunning range of aromatics. Rose petal, blood orange, pomegranate, mint and sweet raspberry are all vivid. Once again, I am totally blown away by the purity of the flavors. Even with all of its intensity, the 2016 retains terrific freshness and energy. Most of the clonal material now is from Lafleur. With their 2016, the Guinaudeau family challenges many of the preconceptions of what Fronsac is and can be. This is a stunning wine. 94+ points

The 2016 Acte 8 is a little more intensity on the nose compared to the Acte 6 with layers of blackberry, briary, touches of blueberry and violet. This is extremely precise and extremely pure. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, more rondeur than the 2015 and exceptional harmony and poise. This seems to shimmer with energy – displayed just the right amount of sappiness to urge another sip. Tasted at the Acte vertical in London. 94 points
