History

Clos des Jacobins is situated at the entrance of the medieval town, right in the heart of the greatest Saint-Emilion estates.
Since the 17th century, this especially uniform vineyard forms a single plot around the cellars. It lies at the foot of the hill, and therefore benefits from the natural erosion of the plateau, which mixes limestone fragments with the clay.This location, coupled with its southern orientation,makes for a terroir that is early cropping and generous.

All the cellars were entirely renovated. The wooden vats are temperature controlled. Offices, a reception and tasting room and
a storage cellar were completed in July 2006. Having been ranked amongst Saint-Emilion’s greatest wines between 1940 and 1950, Clos des Jacobins subsequently fell from favour, although it has been classified from the beginning of the Saint-Emilion classification in 1955. Today, it has recovered its status and won the Saint-Emilion Grand Crus Classés challenge in Hong Kong in 2006.

It has a dark colour, a powerful bouquet with notes of black fruit and is generous and ample on the palate with attractive texture, while displaying pleasant spicy aromas. Clos des Jacobins is a model of complexity and balance, extremely consistent and may be laid out for at least 15 years
