The blend for the 2009 is mostly Merlot, with some Cabernet Franc, but hit over 14.5% natural alcohol. 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. Drink it over the next 20-25 years.||From the sector of St.-Emilion just before the entrance to the village near La Gomerie, Clos des Jacobins, long-owned by the Cordier family, sits on heavy sands above deep limestone.

The Clos des Jacobins is showing more delineation than the La Commanderie alongside, with black berry, pain grille, a touch of tar and a touch of dried herbs. The palate has a vice-like grip, sinewy tannins, tarry black fruit, a touch of white pepper, introverted on the spicy finish that clams up prematurely with some dry, chalky tannins. I think this will show much better post-bottling. Tasted March 2010.

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. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Blueberry and flowers on the nose follow through to a full body, with a mineral, slate and dark berry undertone. Tar too. Long and silky

Very dark. Very sweet black cherries on the nose. Lots of almost rudely ripe fruit. Mellow, complex nose. Very sweet and sumptuous – a sort of burgundian St- Émilion. Fresh and zesty. Derenencourt? [No.] Fun and not too serious. Pretty alcoholic finish though.
