Clos des Jacobins 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Grand Cru Classé 

The nose is aromatic, elegant, racy and offers complexity as well as a good finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of crushed cassis, wild blackberry and small notes of wild red berries, violet combined with touches of licorice, cardamom, tea as well as discreet hints of coffee / Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a slight juiciness, a small suavity, precision, dynamism, a good guideline, a small austere side as well as a small acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy cassis, crushed blackberry and small notes of red berries associated with discreet hints of Zan, violet / cornflowers, undergrowth, nutmeg as well as hints of spices and a imperceptible hint of coffee (in the background). Tannins are fine, elegant and structuring. Good length. There is an imperceptible hint of vanilla on the persistence.
