Polished aromas of currants, blueberries, mahogany, walnut and tobacco. It’s full-bodied with firm, tight-grained tannins. Chewy, concentrated and structured. Real and harmonious character. Try from 2024.

Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with earthy notions of wild mushrooms, black truffles and dusty soil over a core of stewed plums, baked blackberries and boysenberry preserves, plus a touch of powdered cinnamon. The medium to full-bodied palate has impressive freshness cutting through the intense black fruit preserves layers, with a plush texture, finishing on a lingering mineral note. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

This carries to a medium-bodied, ethereal Saint-Emilion with moderate depth and richness yet beautiful overall balance, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's another one of those wines that grows on you with time in the glass and shines more for its balance and elegance than power. I don't think it's going to make old bones, but it should keep nicely for 10-12 years.

Dark but bright-edged purple in colour, the spice from the Petit Verdot in the blend comes through on the nose and in the colour.

It's not quite as precise as some, with reductive notes just knocking the aromatics out, but this will resolve itself during ageing. It has firm tannins, a lovely creamy mid-palate and deep spices which extend the finish. 40% new oak.

The 2018 Couvent des Jacobins is soft, fruity and easygoing, all of which make it a good choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years.

Blackberry jam, chocolate, spice and new leather all flesh out. The 2018 has plenty to offer in its supple, mid-weight personality but I wouldn't push my luck on aging. -- Antonio Galloni
