Morgon 2011 Jean-Ernest Descombes, Georges Duboeuf
The best one word description you can give to this wine is, "consistent". Since the early 1990’s Parker has scored it between 88 and 91 points every year. Grapes are 100% old vine Gamay, sourced from the vineyard at the Descombes estate. The wine is also produced and bottled on site, in the Cru Beaujolais village of Morgon. Georges DuBouef’s team imparts their expertise and insures that the quality is superior while the price remains incredibly affordable. The 2009 was a Wine Spectator Top 100. The Spectator scored this 2011 91 points saying "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. Drink now through 2018."
