Georges Duboeuf Morgon Jean Descombes 2011

Georges Duboeuf Morgon Jean Descombes 750ML 2011       
Sku: 12420

Jean Descombes has succeeded in creating one of the nicest estates in Morgon. He was the kind of man who enjoyed life to the fullest and was always ready to lend a hand. His cellar has become a hot spot in the Beaujolais region. The whole world has passed through his friendly cellar where old bottles of wine, sausages and goat cheese have been chosen with care to greet the visitors. A unique winemaker, Jean did not leave his cellar during the harvest, leaving the grape picking to his two employees. ¾ of the vineyards are more than 30 years old and are planted in the best regions: "Le Py”, "La Roche Pillée”, "Bellevue” and the "Pillets”. The long list of prizes won in competitions is ample proof of the perfect wines that the Jean Descombes estate produces.

Jean Descombes died in October 1993. The torch was handed down to his daughter, Nicole Savoye-Descombes who is continuing with the same enthusiasm and competence true to her father’s tradition in the Cave of Jean Ernest Descombes.

A harmonious Morgon with a delightful blackcurrant flavor, this wine is very representative of its appellation.

Duboeufs 2011 Morgon J. E. Descombes from the domaine formerly known as “Jean Descombes, and whose namesake after more than five decades recently passed the reins to has daughter Nicole delivers the sort of sappy, sweetly ripe and abundant fruit (cherry, black raspberry and purple plum) that wine lovers have come to expect from this bottling, complemented by lily-like inner-mouth floral perfume and high-toned green herbal inflections to its exuberant finish. This fine value should drink well at least through 2015.”,,,

Solid wine, powerful and concentrated. It has the weight of tannins, dark fruits and ripe fruitiness all well combined and with a good aging potential. Acidity adds a touch of freshness to the dark plum fruits. Give this wine 3-5 years.
