Clos des Jacobins 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

Clos des Jacobins 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is aromatic and slightly tight. It reveals notes of cassis, wild fruits and more slightly blackberry, Cuben pepper associated with fine touches of nutmeg, toasted oak as well as a discreet hint of flowers (in the background) and a subtle hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a good definition, an acid frame, a small fat, finesse as well as tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crunchy/juicy blackberry, crunchy strawberry and mores slightly crunchy small red berries associated with fine touches of blueberry, lily, sweet spices as well as a discreet hint of toasted oak and tonka bean. Tannins are fine and very subtlety grainy. There is a subtle hint of vanilla/nut on the persistence/aftertaste. There is a small hint of bitter cocoa on the aftertaste (give gourmandize).
