$118.00 per bottle

Stock: Available

"Created in the 13th century, the vineyards of Couvent des Jacobins were originally tended by friars. Since it was the Duke of Lancaster who donated the land to the Frères Prêcheurs Jacobins, the property had strong ties with England and the wine was very popular across the Channel. It wasn’t until the 1900s that the friars left Couvent des Jacobins, whereupon it was taken over by nobles.

International Wine Report
International Wine Report
  The 2006 Couvent des Jacobins brings aromas and flavours of blackberry and cherries, which are layered in spices and roasted coffee notes. It offers a fine, silky texture that is firm and tightly wound and the finish is long and chewy. Overall a very nice showing from the Château.
