Georges Duboeuf Jean Ernest Descombes Morgon 2014

Overview

This first-class Morgon features a bright garnet color and great harmony of aromas between cherry, kirsch and peach. Heady and structured, with substantial tannins, it has a rich, round and silky mouthfeel – a wine with concentrated flavors. There is great aging potential for the 2015 vintage.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from a 29.7 acre southeast-facing Estate vineyard, with vines more than 50 years old (and some as old as 100 years). Harvesting of this wine is conducted manually, in whole bunches, and the grapes are destemmed before pressing. Semi-carbonic maceration lasts between 10 to 12 days, with malolactic fermentation taking place in temperatures-controlled stainless steel vats between 82 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit.

Interesting Fact
Nicole Descombes Savoye, known as “the Queen of Beaujolais” took over running the winery and vineyards when her parents passed away in 1993 (Nicole’s father, Jean Ernst, was considered one of the great winemakers of the region). Descombes is the first grower that Georges Duboeuf started working with when he started Les Vins Georges Duboeuf in 1968.

Serving Hints

This wine pairs nicely with sirloin steak, roasted duck breast, stuffed Portobello mushrooms and aged cheeses
