2018 Couvent des Jacobins  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

With a silky, juicy, forward character, the wine is lush, plush and polished. The espresso, wild cherry, stone and fennel is apparent from start to finish. There is depth but you also find energy, giving it lift in the finish. 91-93 Pts

2016 Couvent des Jacobins Calicem  (St. Émilion) 92

With a nice floral character, the wine is fruity, fleshy, ripe, plush, round and offers a wealth of dark, red berries, licorice and earthy notes. If you prefer primary, fruity wines, pop a cork, else give it a few years for more softness and nuances to appear.

2015 Couvent des Jacobins  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

This is another 2015 that had really stepped up since bottling. Forward, soft and supple, here you find earthy, polished, sweet, cherries, plums and fennel that carry through to the ripe, sweet, red berry and licorice filled finish.

Better from bottle, than when last tasted in barrel, the wine has gained in richness, texture and complexity. The forward, soft textured, supple wine offers an earthy, polished, sweet, ripe, plum, cherry and licorice profile with a fresh, ripe, slightly, dusty finish. The wine was made from a blend of 85% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot.

Medium-bodied with a floral edge to the stony plums. Give this wine a few years to come together as it should soften and develop quite well.

2011 Couvent des Jacobins  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 84

More interesting on the nose than the palate, this light style of St. Emilion, with its spicy, red berry and herb personality should be enjoyed in its youth.

2010 Couvent des Jacobins  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 88

Medium bodied, firm, tannic, bright, crisp, red berry, spice and espresso oriented wine that needs at least another 5 years or so to come around. I prefer the riper, softer, 2009.

2009 Couvent des Jacobins  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 89

Licorice, espresso, earth and fresh, ripe black cherries with cocoa lead to a round, forward, soft textured, black and fruit filled wine that can be enjoyed young, or aged for a few years.
