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.

This brilliant garnet wine is bright and fresh, with ripe, supple crushed strawberry flavors underscored by zesty nuances of peppercorns, gentle tannins and a clean acidity, finishing on a succulent, refreshing note. - Winery
