    Item no. 122278

    Winemaker's Notes:

    This first-class Morgon shows perfect balance and a sumptuous bouquet of black currant, plum, violets and old-fashioned roses. Elegantly smooth on the palate, revealing several layers of fresh red berries, especially cherries. The silky, prolonged finish signals completely ripened fruit.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Like berries freshly picked on a summer day, the raspberry and strawberry notes here are ripe and pure, mixing with hints of pekoe tea leaf, mineral, ground anise and damson preserves. An elegant and balanced version. Smart Buy.

    Duboeuf's 2011 Morgon J. E. Descombes – from the domaine formerly known as "Jean Descombes," and whose namesake after more than five decades recently passed the reins to has daughter Nicole – delivers the sort of sappy, sweetly ripe and abundant fruit (cherry, black raspberry and purple plum) that wine lovers have come to expect from this bottling, complemented by lily-like inner-mouth floral perfume and high-toned green herbal inflections to its exuberant finish.
