Critical Acclaim

"There’s a lot of sweet fruit here with tobacco, berry and milk chocolate aromas and flavors. Full and silky. Long finish. Best in a long time.
Barrel Sample: 92-93 Points "
93 Points

"Fleshy, with lots of intense blackberry, plum and boysenberry notes blended together and wound with licorice strips and singed alder wood. Solid grip through the finish has a slightly chewy feel now, but should soften soon enough. Best from 2015 through 2025."
92 Points

"Great density here, this wine is big and powerful, but all held together by rich fruit. It is concentrated, the dry tannins a part of a richer whole.
Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points "
92 Points

"This wine has turned out well and is one of the strongest efforts from this estate in many a year. Three-fourths Merlot and the rest mostly Cabernet Franc, the wine offers up oodles of sweet black raspberry, camphor and black currant along with some forest floor and roasted herbs. Super-fruity, opaque ruby/purple, medium to full-bodied, hedonistic and lush, it should drink nicely for at least 10-12+ years."

Learn About Chateau Clos des Jacobins Map ItMap It

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.
