Georges Duboeuf Morgon Jean Descombes 2010

Georges Duboeuf Morgon Jean Descombes 750ml 2010     
Sku: 20360

The story behind a wine often mirrors very closely to that of an individual. For example, Jean Ernest Descombes, an immensely engaging and historical figure from our Beaujolais region, devoted 30 years of his life to creating one of the finest estates and wines in Morgon. High-spirited and known for never turning down a good time, he welcomed wine reviewers and wine-tasting professionals to come and savor some of his fantastic wines. Those who met the unusual man never forgot the intense passion he had for his craft. An extraordinary grower, he deployed his talents in the vineyard as well as in winemaking. Threefourths of his vines are more than 50 years old and planted in the best locations, such as the favored climates of La Py, La roche, La Pillee, Les Pillets and Bellvue. The amazing wines produced at this estate have garnered an impressive list of awards. After Jean Ernests departure to the “vineyard of paradise in October 1993, his daughter, Nicole, took over with an enthusiasm that would have warmed her fathers heart. In tribute, she likes to say that the personality of a wine always conjures up the person who made it. Her fathers wine is anything but an exception to this axiom. Such blissful encounters with Morgon reflect flashes of eternity to those fortunate enough to taste it.

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Aug 2011)
The gamey side of this appellation may come out over time, although I would recommend drinking this - like most of Duboeuf’s 2010s - within the next couple of years. Duboeuf’s perennially prominently fruity 2010 Morgon J. E. Descombes - for some reason now labeled this way rather than as “Domaine Jean Descombes” - offers an exuberant abundance of dark cherry and boysenberry garlanded in wisteria, with welcome measures of refreshing primary juiciness and saliva-liberating salinity. At the same time, there is a sense of fine underlying tannin and a bit of extraneous bitterness in the finish, but I suspect this will be worth following for at least 3-4 years.
