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.
