Tasting Notes

93 points Robert Parker: "This is a big, chewy wine made under the guidance of Hubert de Bouard. Dense ruby/purple, with notes of blackberry and cassis as well as some hints of barbecue smoke, underbrush and toasty oak, this thick, dense and unctuously textured, low-acid wine is a sleeper of the vintage and the best Clos des Jacobins since the famous 1982." (02/12) 92 points Suckling: "Blueberry and blackberries, with hints of flowers on the nose, follow through to full body, with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Chewy. Needs time to resolve the tannins. Try after 2018." (02/12) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A flashy, polished style, with cassis, blackberry sauce and roasted fig notes all woven together and framed by toasty spice and alluring cocoa notes. Long and rich through the finish, with some ambitious toast still to soak up, but the density is there. Best from 2014 through 2026." (03/12) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Ripe, sweet fruit, lots of smooth tannins, caramel and toast. The fruit is rich, lightly structured with firm tannins showing through." (04/10) Note: Futures item. Wine will arrive late 2011 to 2013. You will be contacted for delivery instructions.
