This is a big chewy wine made under the guidance of Hubert de Bouard. Dense ruby/purple with notes of blackberry and cassis as well as some hints of barbecue smoke underbrush and toasty oak this thick dense and unctuously textured low-acid wine is a sleeper of the vintage and the best Clos des Jacobins since the famous 1982. Drink it over the next 20-25 years. From the sector of St.-Emilion just before the entrance to the village near La Gomerie Clos des Jacobins long-owned by the Cordier family sits on heavy sands above deep limestone.

Blueberry and blackberries with hints of flowers on the nose follow through to full body with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Chewy. Needs time to resolve the tannins. Try after 2018

A flashy polished style with cassis blackberry sauce and roasted fig notes all woven together and framed by toasty spice and al -luring cocoa notes. Long and rich through the finish with some ambitious toast still to soak up but the density is there. Best from 2014 through 2026.-J.M.

Woodsy aromas along with earthy scents dominate the nose but are more subtle on the palate. Tons of viscous fruit on entry with rich medium weight fatness. There is good length here thanks to some nice acids that lead to... Woodsy aromas along with earthy scents dominate the nose but are more subtle on the palate. Tons of viscous fruit on entry with rich medium weight fatness. There is good length here thanks to some nice acids that lead to some firm tannins on the finish.
