A great, harmonious Morgon with black currant, plum, violet and old rose aromas, the wine gently coats the palate to reveal successive waves of fresh red berries, especially cherries. A soft, beautifully mature wine.
Jean-Ernest Descombes was a very popular figure in the Beaujolais. He was a jolly character, always ready for a celebration. He had managed to set up one of the finest Morgon estates and promoted the "Cru" with great enthusiasm for 30 years. Descombes was also a gifted vinifier. Three quarters of his vines were over 50 years old and were planted in the best "terroirs," such as Le Py, la Roche Pillée, Les Pillets and Bellevue. The superb nectars produced on the estate won him an impressive list of awards.
