This charming Couvent des Jacobins 2014 is plesant thanks to its cedar notes and toasted aromas coming from the ageing. Swirling gives off the oaky sensation and reveals the complexity of the black fruit aromas. On the mouth, the wine expresses a franc attack turning into a smooth structure of creamy tannins. The oak ageing gives body and weight to this Saint-Emilion and a great aging potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Couvent des Jacobins is a much more harmonious bouquet compared to the Clos des Jacobins (I wonder how many get the two confused!). Here there is attractive red cherry and crushed strawberry scents, the oak neatly integrated and retaining fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet entry: black cherries, cassis and a hint of licorice. There is certainly good density in the mouth and the finish feels solid yet not imposing, allowing attractive sous-bois and cedar notes to flourish on the aftertaste.
