All Vintages of this wine
The Couvent des Jacobins 2009, a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, is a very successful vintage. The color of this wine is of a beautiful garnet and the nose reveals fruity red fruit scents from the start. The mouth seems deceptively simple, but it is round and sauve with a solid tannic structure. The finish offers a medium persistence and the wine is overall refreshing. Best to enjoy this wine by 2020.
Parker : 88-90 / 100

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The finest wine made here since the 1982, the 2009 possesses classic notes of melted licorice, roasted herbs, black currants, and cherries in its medium to full-bodied, pure, seriously endowed personality. The tannins are substantial, but silky and well-integrated, and the wine is long and authoritative. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. (Tasted once.)
