The color is clear garnet. On the nose, there are black fruit and spicy notes. The palate is round with slight oak. The Clos des Jacobins is a deliciously tasteful pleasure. A great success in 2010 for this Saint-Emilion.
Clos des Jacobins 2010
Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
