Description

A lively and balanced great Saint-Émilion red wine

The estate

It is in a real treasure trove, sheltered from the eyes but in the heart of Saint-Émilion that the Couvent des Jacobins can be discovered. A true memory of the small medieval town, the Jacobins Convent was built in the 13th century. The estate has been renowned for the production of its wines for nearly seven centuries. Since 2010, Xavier Jean has been at the head of the estate and is perpetuating the history of this emblematic property of the appellation.

The vineyard

The vineyard of the Couvent des Jacobins is spread across 4 different categories of soil: the limestone rock situated to the east of Saint-Émilion, the clayey-sandy on calcareous molasses of the Fronsadais (south-west), the clayey-sandy on iron crasse subsoil (south-west) and the clayey-limestone (on the north-east plateau of the village). The 2022 Couvent des Jacobins is made from vines ranging in age from 8 to 61 years.  The property is certified organic with the use of complementary biodynamic solutions.

The vintage

The 2022 vintage benefited from warm weather and low rainfall. Budburst was slightly earlier than in previous years as a result of a relatively mild winter. Cool spells in May spared the vineyard. Flowering took place in June. The rainfall at the beginning of September was ideal for refining the ripening of the grapes in time for the harvest.

Winemaking and ageing

The hand-picked grapes were sorted twice, on the vine and on the table in the cellar. Vinification 100% by gravity. Pre-fermentation maceration of 3 to 5 days, total maceration of 18 to 22 days. The wine was aged for 12 and 15 months in barrels, of which 45% were new and 55% were one-wine barrels.

Blend

Merlot (82%)
Cabernet Franc (14%)
Petit Verdot (4%)
