Editorial Reviews for Georges Duboeuf Morgon Jean Descombes
Less beefy than the house bottling this none the less shows some bloody, meaty aromas paired with chamomile and dried herb aromas over a base of wild berry fruits. A bit blocky in the mouth, this has bright acidity adding a soft orange rind cast the the wild strawberry fruits on the palate and the tannins still show a bit of firmness warranting another year or two in the cellar. The finish is tight and a touch austere, very firm and ultimately rather long and frankly elegant even though there is a toughness to the tannins. For the future. 88pts
With a nice scent of raspberry with a hint of banana and candy apple, this Morgon is quite on; the entry is smooth, somewhat light for the Cru, but still meaty and gritty with moderate tannin. There is raspberry and cream on the medium finish. Will age a few years, but excellent for current drinking. Good Price to Quality and far, far superior to a simple Village wine. 89 points.
