Georges Duboeuf Gd Morgon Jean Descombes 2009
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.
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
My Rating 86: nice long nose. Taste dry typical Beaujeaulais Nothing special about this no complexity. Overpriced!!
Do NOT waste your money on this wine. Enough said. There is no way this is rated 93. I would give it 74 pts. avoid if possible.
Don't waste your m money on this wine. Enough said!
A very good, light bodied but satisfying wine.
Insanely good at this price point
External Reviews for Georges Duboeuf Gd Morgon Jean Descombes
A Gamay wine from Burgundy in France. 2009 Georges Duboeuf Morgon Jean Descombes 750ml
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.
A disappointing effort from this normally reliable estate, the 2001 shows hints of raisin and leather on the nose and slightly cooked black cherry flavors along with a supple mouthfeel.
Cinnamon and vanilla notes weave through the copious amounts of black cherry and blackberry fruit, with a fleshy, brambly finish that should unwind right in time for Thanksgiving dinner. Drink now through 2002.
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.)
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.
