Fat, charming and moderately tannic, this wine represents a model of complexity. On tasting it often turns out to be colorful, rich, round and creamy. Very regular, it has a cellaring potential of around fifteen years. In 2012, Clos de Jacobins regained its rank of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé.
The Clos des Jacobins, classified grand cru of Saint-Emilion, as well as the Château de la Commanderie, Saint-Emilion grand cru were bought in 2004 by Thibaut and Magali Decoster. Following the wise advice of Hubert de Boüard (Château Angélus), the two vineyards have been completely restructured and rejuvenated. The Clos des Jacobins vineyard extends in one piece around the cellars. Located at the foot of the coast, the vines benefit from the erosion of the plateau which mixes limestone scree with clay.
