The aromatic richness and balance of a red wine from Saint-Emilion, unveiled by Clos des Jacobins

The estate

The prestigious Clos des Jacobins from the Saint-Emilion appellation is named after the Benedictine preaching monks who welcomed pilgrims on the roads of St-Jacques de Compestelle. Since 2004, Clos des Jacobins has been owned by Thibaut and Magali Decoster.

The vineyard

Since the 18th century, this 8.3-hectare, Classified Great Growth vineyard is the only unsegmented vineyard at the heart of the great terroirs of Saint-Emilion. Situated at the foot of the hill and benefting from excellent south-facing exposure, the vines, aged 30 years on average, are planted on a very big limestone terroir. Sustainable agriculture is practiced at the vineyard.

The winemaking and aging

Following manual harvests in crates, the grapes are subject to rigorous sorting. Vatting lasts for 30 days. Pour-overs and offloading precede malolactic fermentation in new barrels. Aging lasts for 18 months in barrels (of which 75% are new).

Blend

Clos des Jacobins 2020 is made of a blend of Merlot (80%), Cabernet Franc (18%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (2%).
