Morgon, Domaine Georges Descombes 208
Domaine Georges Descombes, Morgon (Organic)
Georges Descombes is one of the pillars of the appellation. His Beaujolais are serious but also give a lot of immediate pleasure. Like his friends Marcel Lapierre and Jean Foillard, he likes minimal intervention and lets the granite terroir do the talking. Beautifully juicy but with good backbone, his wines can be enjoyed early but will also age for many
"Bright violet. Expansive black raspberry, cherry and floral scents, along with suggestions of licorice, smoky minerals and allspice. Concentrated yet also lively in character, offering bitter cherry and dark berry flavors that are enlivened by an undercurrent of juicy acidity. Pliant tannins shape the finish, which hangs on with strong, spicy persistence and building florality."
Grape: 100% Gamay
