A prestigious reference of its appellation, Clos des Jacobins oversees a very large vineyard spread over 8.3 hectares, located at the foot of a hill with excellent southern exposure. The vines are planted in great limestone soils.
At the tasting, the Clos des Jacobins 2018 displays an intensely dense and deep purple colour. The very expressive nose offers ripe fruit and pure black fruits, like cherry and blueberry. Menthol and liquorice notes appear, along with beautiful mineral touches. On the palate, the wine evolves a certain liveliness, tension and generosity, enhanced by the crunchy and juicy fruit. The palate is smooth, with an elegant structure and perfectly integrated tannins. With freshness and tone, the finish lingers long.
A great vintage for the Clos des Jacobins, a Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Emilion with a great ageing potential.
