It has a dark color, a powerful bouquet with notes of black fruit and is generous and ample on the palate with attractive texture, which displaying pleasant spicy aromas. Clos des Jacobins is a model of complexity and balance, extremely consistent, and may be laid down for at least 10 years.
This may be the finest wine I have ever tasted from Clos des Jacobins. Proprietor Bernard Decoster and consulting winemaker Hubert de Bouard have fashioned a magical blend of 75% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc as well as a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. An opulent, flamboyant nose of incense, forest floor, creme de cassis, pain grille, cappuccino, and licorice is followed by a fleshy, opulent, heady, atypically showy St.-Emilion. Although there is plenty of sweet tannin, the wine’s precociousness and flamboyant, even ostentatious style suggests it should be drunk over the next 12-15+ years.
