Couvent des Jacobins Bourgogne Chardonnay

Strong wine with lots of character but if served too cold, acids overpower, whereas a moment in glass lets the rich, almost anisy notes arise. — 8 months ago


Grand Cru Saint-Emilion Merlot 2019

2019 vintage Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. Calicem is produced from a small vineyard (less than one hectare) adjacent to Grand Cru Classé Couvent des Jacobins whose owner bought it in 2015. It was planted in 1961/1962 with 100% Merlot from old clones.and it is vinified separately from Couvent des Jacobins (first vintage 2015).This beautiful 2019 is made in microscopic quantities (2188 bottles) with the "vinification intégrale" method which leads to a more gentle extraction and better wood integration. Winemaker Denis Pomarède and consulting oenologist Thomas Duclos did a great job in crafting a beautifully balanced wine with extraordinary elegance, purity, silky tannins and a long finish with an intriguing minerality. Don't expect a blockbuster, this is all about subtlety. Very impressive Saint-Emilion of Premier Grand Cru Classé quality, well worth trying to grab a bottle. Abv. 14,5 %. — 2 years ago

Couvent des Jacobins

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2015 vintage. Tasting better every time. The truffles starting to show in the very attractive nose, loaded with raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, and delicate cedar wood. In the mouth it is a beautifully balanced, classic Saint-Emilion, that always remained true to its style. Having experience with older vintages, this should drink wonderfully over the next 30 years if well-stored. A terrific, totally underrated Grand Cru Classé. Abv. 14,5%. — 4 months ago

Le Menut des Jacobins

St. Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend

2015 vintage. The second wine of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé Couvent des Jacobins is very impressive. Delicious floral perfume, mixed with blackberry and subtle oak. Good concentration, layered and fresh, with a serious tannic backbone that gives this wine a certain classy firmness that suggests it will still gain from further bottle ageing. It has a lovely old school Saint-Emilion feel about it. — 3 years ago

Domaine Capmartin

Cuvée du Couvent Tannat 2015

Vintage 2915 | Biowine. Obvious very young, dark colour with redbrown rim. I was attracted by the beautiful smell with many layers: pencil shaving, leather, tobacco and even roses. Way too young to be drunk but the potential is very clear. To put away in the cellar, far away in a cellar. — 2 years ago
