Georges Duboeuf Morgon Jean Descombes 2011

Georges Duboeuf Morgon Jean Descombes 750ML 2011       
Sku: 12420

The story behind a wine often mirrors very closely to that of an individual. For example, Jean Ernest Descombes, an immensely engaging and historical figure from our Beaujolais region, devoted 30 years of his life to creating one of the finest estates and wines in Morgon. High-spirited and known for never turning down a good time, he welcomed wine reviewers and wine-tasting professionals to come and savor some of his fantastic wines. Those who met the unusual man never forgot the intense passion he had for his craft. An extraordinary grower, he deployed his talents in the vineyard as well as in winemaking. Threefourths of his vines are more than 50 years old and planted in the best locations, such as the favored climates of La Py, La roche, La Pillee, Les Pillets and Bellvue. The amazing wines produced at this estate have garnered an impressive list of awards. After Jean Ernests departure to the “vineyard of paradise in October 1993, his daughter, Nicole, took over with an enthusiasm that would have warmed her fathers heart. In tribute, she likes to say that the personality of a wine always conjures up the person who made it. Her fathers wine is anything but an exception to this axiom. Such blissful encounters with Morgon reflect flashes of eternity to those fortunate enough to taste it.

Duboeuf’s 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.
