Morgon Chateau des Jacques 2008
Wasnt what I expected.
To me this was just short of good; it lacked fruit. Came across as not only light but thin, lacking body or character and overall was very unimpressive, even for the money.
This is a pleasant and affordable Beaujolais. My biggest gripe with the grape is that it seemed a touch to watered-down for my taste. Perhaps I made the mistake of pairing this wine with a New York Strip. Next time I'll try it with chicken or perhaps turkey for Thanksgiving. Still, the wine is smooth and enjoyable.
Traditional looking label
After reading the reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. I agree with the smooth and light. i had just finished a Pinot Noir and the difference in texture was clear. While I prefered the Pinot, this was a good wine for the price.
I was expecting more, but it was fine for a light red, I'm sure if I were pairing it with food instead of just having a glass, it would fair better. I still prefer my Pinot Noir. Maybe a different year would taste better.
Perfect to be paired with a good pork dish, we enjoyed it with Bacon wrapped Shrimp and Creamy Polenta.
