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

External Reviews for Georges Duboeuf Gd Morgon Jean Descombes
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.
Pretty fresh for a 2006, with nearly ebullient maraschino cherry, plum and licorice notes. Briary finish. Drink now.
Ebullient nose of crushed maraschino cherries, menthol and milk chocolate, with a bouncy texture and fruit-driven finish. This may fatten up, but it's more forward than most from this vintage. A remarkably consistent profile for this wine from year to year. Drink now through 2004.
\ 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.\
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.

The 2007 Morgon Domaine Jean Descombes sports a striking nose of black raspberry jam, cassis, and sweetly fragrant roses. Irresistibly luscious and bright, it saturates the palate with black fruits while also delivering persistent, wafting floral notes, tallow-like animal undertones and hints of salt and wet stone. Enjoy this unusually successful and seamlessly-ripe 2007 (and amazing value) anytime over the next four years.
