The 2011 Acte 3 is a worthy follow-up to the Acte 2 and should not be overlooked. The bouquet is very harmonious with blackberry, raspberry coulis, traces of freshly rolled tobacco and a subtle pastille element. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and less depth than the Acte 3. There is a sense of harmony here and towards the finish that tannic framework feels finer that the first two vintages. The elegance is very appealing and who can resist that touch of black truffle that sneaks in on the aftertaste. Very fine. Tasted at the Acte vertical in London. Drink 2019-2028.
