Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

There are all of 2,200 cases of the 2008 Morgon Jean Descombes, which represents a perennially popular benchmark for its appellation, not to mention value. This year, black raspberry and peach preserves rush from the glass and envelop the palate with silken textural allure and an almost liqueur-like presence. Yet for all of its suggestions of sweetness, this is also more than bright enough to refresh, and grips impressively with finishing complexity of animal nuances and floral inhalation. Expect this to be worth several years of cellaring – not that one would want to miss out on its youthful charms. This wine, incidentally, is in fact domaine bottled, but has been marketed for many years exclusively by DuBoeuf, with their name also appearing prominently on the label.

Duboeuf
For over 40 years Georges Duboeuf has been the Beaujolais region's most renowned négociant and is today regarded in the wine world as the "King of Beaujolais." Born in 1933 in Pouilly-Fuissé, the son of a winegrower, Georges began selling his family's wines from the back of his bicycle to now-legendary local chefs such as Paul Bocuse and Paul Blanc. In 1964, Georges realized his dream and founded his own company: Les Vins Georges Duboeuf.
