Clos des Jacobins 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is aromatic, slightly tight and offers a slight concentration. It reveals notes of wild blackberry and wild small black fruits associated with touches of wild red berries, flowers (violet, lilac) as well as hints of black pepper, spices, cardamom and a very discreet toasted hint. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, racy and offers a good definition, minerality, a small freshness, a fine grain, a good structure as well as a small tension as well as a small fat. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, crushed cassis and small notes of wild black berries associated with small touches of fleshy raspberry, small red berries, flowers as well as discreet hints of spices, Cuben pepper, cocoa and very discreet toasted hints (in the background). Good length and persistence. There are hints of black pepper, toasted hints and cocoa on the persistence. A beautiful wine!
