James Suckling - "Dark chocolate, bark, dried flowers, cherries, walnuts, crushed stones and orange zest on the nose. Graphite, too. Textured, mineral and expansive with a full body and firm, chalky tannins. Broad yet focused. I like the cool freshness at the end. Best yet? From organically grown grapes. Best From 2026."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Composed of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2020 Couvent des Jacobins has an alcohol level of 14.5% with a pH of 3.68. It is aging for an anticipated 12 to 15 months in French oak barrels, 45% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it strides confidently out of the glass with notions of baked blackberries, black cherry preserves and stewed plums, plus touches of damp soil, espresso and licorice with a waft of wild mushrooms. The medium to full-bodied palate is quite tightly wound with plenty of black fruit layers intertwined with mineral and exotic spice nuances, framed by grainy tannins and bags of freshness, finishing with a lively lift. Barrel Sample: 92-94"

Decanter - "This takes a severe tone for the opening beats, a little austere with tannins standing to attention, but there is a ton of flavour as it opens, with cocoa beans and cigar box, black pepper spice and a creamy cassis and raspberry fruit through the mid palate. A yield of 32hl/ha. Organic certified as of this vintage. Barrel Sample: 92"

Jeb Dunnuck - "A meaty, beefy, spicy wine based on 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2020 Couvent Des Jacobins offers up plenty of savory red and blue fruits to go with medium-bodied richness, good mid-palate density, building tannins, and rock-solid length on the finish. While it’s savory and slightly evolved aromatically, I love its purity and freshness on the palate, and my money is on this easily being an outstanding wine once bottled. Barrel Sample: 90-92"
