Couvent des Jacobins 2016: a Saint-Emilion with a structured finish

The Couvent des Jacobins is a Grand Cru Classe from Saint-Emilion. The 10.7 hectare vineyard benefits from vines averaging 45 years of age that located on clay-limestone and clay-sandy soil. The wine is aged in barrels for an average of 12 to 15 months, with 55% in new oak and 45% in one-year-old barrels. The Couvent des Jacobins 2016 is made from a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.

At tasting, the Couvent des Jacobins 2016 develops blackberry and spicy aromas. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and fresh acidity. The finish reveals a beautiful structure.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Couvent des Jacobins has an attractive bouquet with blackberry, brown spices and a touch of game. Perhaps there is just a tiny bit of brettanomyces in this sample? The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, crisp acidity, a little pinched on the mid-palate with a structured finish that feels a little dry at the moment. Hopefully this will flesh out one in bottle. At the moment, I have fonder memories of the 2015 last year.
