Winemaker's Notes:

It has a dark color, a powerful bouquet with notes of black fruit and is generous and ample on the palate with attractive texture, which displaying pleasant spicy aromas. Clos des Jacobins is a model of complexity and balance, extremely consistent, and may be laid down for at least 10 years.

About Chateau Clos des Jacobins:

Clos des Jacobins is situated at the entrance to the medieval town, right in the heart of the great Saint-Emilion estates. Since the 17th century, this especially uniform vineyard fors a single plot around the cellars.

Having been ranked among Saint-Emilion's greatest wines between 1940 and 1950, Clos des Jacobins subsequently fell from favor, although it has been classified from the beginning of the Saint-Emilion classification in 1955. Today, it has recovered its status and won the Saint-Emilion Grands Crus Classes Challenge in Hong-Kong in 2006.
