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 palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry, a fine line of acidity, sappier than previous "Acte" releases with a gentle grip. blackberry and bilberry, a touch of spice on the muscular finish. There is some hardness here al
