    Winemaker's Notes:

    #21 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

    A deep crimson color. The nose initially offers floral aromas (violets), which then open out on to fruity aromas (blackcurrant, raspberries, wild peach). On the palate, this Morgon reveals remarkable substance and a delightful fleshiness, while the fruity aromas are confirmed. This Morgon 2009 Domaine Jean Descombes has great finesse, distinction and elegance. Good persistence. A wine poised for a great future.

    This wine pairs well with lamb, turkey and venison.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light tannins and a smoky mineral note frame this lush red, which displays layers of black cherry, raspberry ganache and tea rose flavors. There’s a spicy thread running through the wine, leading to a fresh, firm finish.

    Wine Spectator

    Effusively and sweetly fruity as usual, the 2009 Morgon Jean Descombes (tasted from tank) is scented with creme de cassis, black raspberry preserves and pear liqueur; silkenly saturates the palate with rich yet infectiously juicy fruit concentrate; and introduces a saline note that along with its sense of juicy freshness makes for a stimulating finish. This perennially outstanding value will probably pick up more complexity over the next 12-18 months and be worth following for at least twice that long. (That said, in the form of La Chaponne and Mont Chavy, Jean Descombes has, for a change, got serious competition in this vintage from within the Duboeuf portfolio.)
    Range: 90-91

    This wine might appear to be too metallic if you taste right after opening, but if allow it some time to oxygenate it reveals more subtle flavors and proves to be quite a good wine to drink on its own (without food to pair with).

    This is a wonderful light wine for those guests who may be transitioning from whites to reds. Light in tannins and a very smooth finish. Not too complicated, but then again sometimes simple is best.

    Wow. A few of these Beaujolais around a casual spaghetti dinner with friends, helps to appreciate this fine young wine. Paid $16 each.

    Don't waste your money on this wine. Enough said! On the nose it seems like a good gamay with that banana aroma but that doesn't live up to the way it tastes. It has bitterness that you do not want to have in your wine. There is absolutely no way this could be rated 93. I would give it 74 pts. Avoid if possible.
