Food Pairings for Georges Duboeuf Gd Morgon Jean Descombes
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 Georges Duboeuf Gd Morgon Jean Descombes
Kirsch, red fruits, floral and violets. When it is young it has the fruity aromas of Beaujolais. When it is older it will have the charm of Burgundy.
Saturated cherry, chocolate and cassis notes weave throughout this medium-bodied, firmly structured Morgon that has density and a lingering finish, Drink now through 2001.
...provocative, expressive nose of raspberry and kirsch... explosively fruity... sensual, seductive, charming... hedonistic, lushly-styled wine.
Easily the best Beaujolais we've tasted in years, and the most enjoyable in recent memory; fruity and vibrant without being irritating, exhibiting a ripeness and silky texture reminiscent of Grenache or good vintages of Côtes de Beaune. It instantly won over a tasting panel heavy with Beaujolais skeptics.
Kirsch and spice flavors are vivid in this unusually dense Beaujolais with firm tannic underpinning. 14, 000 cases made.
Number 21 on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2011!! Georges Duboeuf himself stated that 2009 was the best vintage of his lifetime. This wine which is one of his most consistently fine year after year, in 2009 has truly excelled. Produced and bottled at the Domiane in Morgon, Georges DuBouef’s team imparts their expertise to insure that the quality is always there while the price remains unbelievably affordable. The Wine Spectator scored it 93 points saying "Light tannins and a smoky mineral note frame this lush red, which displays layers of black cherry, raspberry ganache and tea rose flavors. A spicy thread runs through the wine, leading to a fresh, firm finish. Drink now." Limited!
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.
This first-class Morgon shows perfect balance and a sumptuous bouquet of black currant, plum, violets and old-fashioned roses. elegantly smooth on the palate, revealing several layers of fresh red berries, especially cherries. The silky, prolonged finish signals completely ripened fruit.
