Description

Characteristics and tasting tips of Couvent des Jacobins 2023

Tasting

Resonating with the vintages of 2008 or 2016, this 2023 combines aromatic richness, tension, freshness and balance.

The complexity and structure of a great red wine from Saint-Émilion

The estate

It is in a real jewel, hidden from view but in the heart of Saint-Émilion that the Couvent des Jacobins is discovered. A true memory of the small medieval city, the Couvent des Jacobins was built in the 13th century. The estate is thus renowned for the production of its wines for nearly seven centuries. Since 2010, Xavier Jean has been at the head of the estate, thus perpetuating the history of this emblematic property of the appellation.

The vineyard

With an area of 10.7 hectares, the vineyard of the Couvent des Jacobins extends over 4 different categories of soils: the limestone rock located to the east of Saint-Émilion, the clayey-sandy on calcic molasses from Fronsadais (south-west), the clayey-sandy on iron slag subsoils (south-west) and the clay-limestone (on the north-east plateau of the village). The Couvent des Jacobins 2023 comes from vines whose age varies between 8 and 61 years. The estate is certified in organic farming with the use of complementary biodynamic solutions.

Vinification and ageing

The manually harvested grapes are subject to a double sorting on the vine and on the table in the cellar. 100% gravity parcel vinification. Pre-fermentation maceration, total maceration of 22 to 35 days. Reasoned extraction based on tastings and vinification of the petit verdot accompanied by manual punch-downs. The ageing of 12 to 15 months is carried out in French oak barrels, 40% of which are new and 60% of which are barrels of one wine.

Blend

Merlot (84%)
Cabernet Franc (11%)
