"This may be the finest wine I have ever tasted from Clos des Jacobins. Proprietor Bernard Decoster and consulting winemaker Hubert de Bouard have fashioned a magical blend of 75% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc as well as a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. An opulent, flamboyant nose of incense, forest floor, creme de cassis, pain grille, cappuccino, and licorice is followed by a fleshy, opulent, heady, atypically showy St.-Emilion. Although there is plenty of sweet tannin, the wine’s precociousness and flamboyant, even ostentatious style suggests it should be drunk over the next 12-15+ years."

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.
