Georges Duboeuf Morgon Domaine de la Chaponne 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

90-91+ points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): From the high western edge of its appellation, just outside the old village of Morgon, the 2009 Morgon Domaine de la Chaponne mingles fresh black fruits; kirsch; toasted, salted nuts; high-toned herbal essences; and a haunting hint of rowan in an effusive aromatic display, backed by a mouth-filling and delightfully buoyant palate impression. Here is a 2009 that belies whatever alcohol it may have. Cherry pit, salt, and chewy berry skin combine to help render the finish lip-smacking. I would not be surprised if this terrific value held up well for 3-4 years, though I cannot speak from direct experience with older examples. (Aug 2010)

Georges and Franck Dubœuf have made a thorough selection of wines from Burgundy, the Rhône Valley, Bordeaux, the Loire and Languedoc, while giving champagne the prestigious pride of place it deserves. Bruno Vertut and Alain Beaurin, who staff the cellar, deliver specific advice recommending combinations of wine and food, making the most of a customer’s budget or suggesting new discoveries. A neat blend of refinement and relaxation make this a cellar for both ordinary wine-lovers and connoisseurs. Dubœuf, rue Marbeuf, a cellar like every cellar should be, where you quite simply find good bottles at the nicest price, together with the pleasure of getting sound and considerate advice. Georges and Franck Dubœuf have won recognition for their expertise in the art of wine tasting and selection, a perfect illustration of which is their cellar, just off the Champs Élysées. More than anything else, their one wish is to perpetuate, on Rue Marbeuf, one of the capital’s most Parisian shopping streets, a product marked by trade-mark simplicity and excellent value for money. This is where you find the best of the wine range from Georges Dubœuf. Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages rub shoulders with the 10 Beaujolais vintages of Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly, Chénas, Chiroubles, Fleurie, Juliénas, Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent, Régnié and Saint-Amour. Plus the Mâcon appellations of Mâcon, Viré-Clessé, Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint Véran. Whether fruity or flowery, lively or potent, for immediate opening or for long stays in a cellar, they all illustrate to perfection their Beaujolais, Mâcon and Burgundy identity. Read less
