    Dark in color, almost black. Aromas of raisin, spices and blackberry follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a long, powerful finish. Has loads of fruit and toasty oak. This is exciting. A new 1947?

    Good full ruby. Black raspberry, menthol and bitter chocolate on the nose, with hints of espresso and herbs. Nose dominated by primary fruits; offers good texture but comes across as a bit undifferentiated at this early stage. But there's more flesh here to support the tannins than I have found in recent vintages from this chateau. Wait until 2012.

    Sweet rich dark fruit. Lots of spiced plums and just this side of raisiny. Then very good minerally fine texture - deep pile but fine tannins. Very classy with lovely savoury dark fruit in the middle. Long and still keeps its freshness. (JH)

    This may be the finest wine I have ever tasted from Clos des Jacobins. Proprietor Bernard Decoster and consulting winemaker Hubert de Bouard have fashioned a magical blend of 75% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc as well as a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. An opulent, flamboyant nose of incense, forest floor, creme de cassis, pain grille, cappuccino, and licorice is followed by a fleshy, opulent, heady, atypically showy St.-Emilion. Although there is plenty of sweet tannin, the wine's precociousness and flamboyant, even ostentatious style suggests it should be drunk over the next 12-15+ years.

    Really nice wine with a great color, no tanin and easy to drink. Decanter for 3 hours is important. Robert parker says, |This may be the finest wine I have ever tasted from Clos des Jacobins.|
