Tasting Notes:
“The nose is aromatic and offers a very beautiful freshness. It reveals notes of fresh blackberry, small fresh wild fruits and slight notes of coffee, bitter dark chocolate associated with discreet hints of fresh strawberry as well as a subtle hint of licorice, slight notes of sweet spices and a very discreet hint of cardamom. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a very beautiful freshness, a beautiful mineral frame, a slight tension, a good finesse,a beautiful structure as well as fat. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh boysenberry, cassis and a discreet hint of raspberry, red berries associated with slight notes of dark chocolate and coffee on the finish. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length and good persistence. The finish is slightly gourmande. Beautiful potential” (VerteVin)

    Sweet vanilla and fragrant, perfumed red berries and flowers lead to a palate that has a rich and sturdy feel. This has the structure to really deliver in time. Beautifully structured, fresh and long palate here. Try from 2022.

    The 2016 Clos des Jacobins is rich, powerful and explosive. Savory herbs, graphite, smoke, leather and licorice make a strong opening statement, Powerful and deeply resonant, in the glass, the 2016 packs a serious punch. New oak is quite prominent today, but this is nevertheless an impressive effort. This is an especially rich, extracted style. Even so, all the elements are nicely balanced. Tasted two times.”

    The 2016 Clos des Jacobins is a big, rich wine with tons of dark fruit and equally imposing structure. Dark cherry, mocha, plum, espresso, wild flowers and menthol all add character. This is a decidedly powerful, extracted style.
