Food Pairings for Duboeuf Morgon Domaine des Versauds
The appearance, as with many younger Beaujolais wines, is fresh and bright. Cherries and fresh raspberries are immediately apparent in the nose, but some vigorous swirling will reveal dried apricots and smokiness. Racy and streamlined, the acidity gives this wine its backbone with the delicate tannins rounding out the mouthfeel. This is a light-bodied wine that is both incredibly food-friendly and delicious on its own. Read more about this wine and others at: http://bit.ly/gznJmK

External Reviews for Duboeuf Morgon Domaine des Versauds
This wine's raspberry and herb aromas are enriched by the smokiness of oak. there's a complex, woodland funk, melding violets and mushrooms into the silkiness of the tannin. It's well knit and suited to a few years of age, or to serving now with roast beef.
Effusively and sweetly fruity as usual, the 2009 Morgon Jean Descombes (tasted from tank) is scented with creme de cassis, black raspberry preserves and pear liqueur; silkenly saturates the palate with rich yet infectiously juicy fruit concentrate; and introduces a saline note that along with its sense of juicy freshness makes for a stimulating finish. This perennially outstanding value will probably pick up more complexity over the next 12ndash;18 months and be worth following for at least twice that long. (That said, in the form of La Chaponne and Mont Chavy, Jean Descombes has, for a change, got serious competition in this vintage from within the Duboeuf portfolio.)
An intense Beaujolais light-years away from the thin quaffers you may have experienced. Signature features are its dark purple color, raspberry bouquet, and lively palate. Drink it and you will know why this single-estate Morgon is regularly singled out as one of the heartiest and best Beaujolais wines.
Light tannins and a smoky mineral note frame this lush red, which displays layers of black cherry, raspberry ganache and tea rose flavors. Therersquo;s a spicy thread running through the wine, leading to a fresh, firm finish. Drink now.
Pretty fresh for a 2006, with nearly ebullient maraschino cherry, plum and licorice notes. Briary finish. Drink now.
The most successful of Duboeuf's Morgons, a commune that had difficulty coping with the powerful sun, heat, and drought of the vintage, is the 2003 Morgon Jean Descombes. Produced from 20 hectoliters per hectare yields (the norm is closer to 60), it reveals violet-laced waxy black fruit aromas. Light to medium-bodied, it offers a structured character with elegant layers of floral blackberries, blueberries, and cassis. Pure, displaying lovely depth, this wine also possesses a long, angle-free finish. Drink it over the next 5 years.
85-86+ points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): Also recommended, but no tasting note given. (Aug 2010) When young, the wine has red berry characteristics (raspberries and strawberries) but also a touch of blackcurrant. Smooth and complex on the palate, where it develops its full range of aromas. Pleasant to drink over the next 2-3 years.
