Clos des Jacobins, Grand Cru Classé since the origins, is the reference for the elegance, power and balance of Saint-Émilion. Perched at the top of the hillsides plunging towards the Dordogne, it benefits from an exceptional location and is home to the guest rooms of Vignobles Magali & Thibaut Decoster.

Historic vineyard and exceptional wine.

The 8.5 hectares of Clos des Jacobins are located at the entrance to the medieval city, in the heart of the great terroirs of Saint-Émilion. Since the 17th century, the particularly homogeneous vineyard has been in one piece around the cellars. The vines, aged 30 years on average, are at the foot of the hill, thus benefiting from the erosion of the plateau which mixes limestone scree with clay. This location and southern exposure constitute a unique, early and generous terroir. After following the recommendations of the Environmental Management System for Bordeaux wines since 2010, Magali & Thibaut Decoster obtained Level 3 High Environmental Value certification in 2021. In 2024, Clos des Jacobins will complete its conversion to Organic Agriculture.

Preachers and wine growers, history of Clos des Jacobins

Clos des Jacobins owes its name to the Benedictine preaching monks who were named Jacobins in reference to Saint-Jacques, name of the Parisian convent. The Jacobins who lived on the outskirts of the village were using the farm's buildings to welcome pilgrims and the vineyard to produce wine which then was their main income provider.
