Clos des Jacobins 2016: a dense Saint-Émilion Grand Cru

Clos des Jacobins is a Grand Cru Classé from the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru appellation. This red wine comes from an 8-hectare vineyard planted with vines aged 30 years on average. These benefit from soil made up of limestone, clay and calcareous scree. The wine is aged in barrels (75% new). The blend of Clos des Jacobins 2016 consists of 80% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.

At tasting, the Clos des Jacobins 2016 develops floral, black fruit (blackberry, blueberry) and vegetal aromas. On the palate, the wine is fleshy, bold, and of great density.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Clos des Jacobins has a well defined bouquet with blackberry, bilberry, pressed flowers and a touch of bay leaf. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly chewy entry. This feels bold and assertive, quite dense but it needs more delineation and precision towards the finish. Not bad, but it could be better.
