JAMES SUCKLING: "This is a really racy red with blackberries and mineral. Salty undertones. Medium to full body. Really solid and precise in the center palate. Long and racy. 82% merlot, 14% cabernet franc, and 4% petit verdot. From organically grown grapes."
JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2022 Couvent Des Jacobins comes from a great terroir located just beside the village of Saint-Emilion. Made from 82% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot that's sill resting in 45% new oak, it has a ripe, black and blue-fruited style as well as medium to full-bodied richness, ripe, supple tannins, solid mid-palate depth, and some classic leafy herb and graphite aromas and flavors. Tasted twice with consistent notes."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: "Composed of 82% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2022 Couvent des Jacobins displays an opaque garnet-purple color. It explodes with bombastic notes of juicy plums, black cherry preserves, and mulberries, followed by wafts of licorice, violets, and dark chocolate. The full-bodied palate is laden with black fruit preserves, supported by velvety tannins and compelling tension, finishing long and opulent. A gorgeous expression of the vintage!"
THE WINE ADVOCATE: "Bursting with aromas of sweet blackberries, cherries, rose petals and licorice, the 2022 Couvent des Jacobins is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming, with a succulent core of fruit and a seamless, enveloping profile. It will offer a broad drinking window."
FALSTAFF: "Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, dezente Randaufhellung. Zart floral, reife rote Herzkirschen, ein Hauch von Vanille und Zwetschken, einladendes Bukett. Stoffig, elegant, Brombeerkonfit, präsente, integrierte Tannine, würzig, mineralisch-salzig im Nachhall, gutes Entwicklungspotenzial."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Deep in color, black cherries, licorice, chocolate, and plums. The wine is rich, chocolately, and packed with dark red fruits, and freshness with a hint of espresso in the lingering, sensual finish. Drink from 2025-2040."
