Domaine Jean-Ernest Descombes Georges Duboeuf Morgon 2009


Compact dark berry and cherry fruit with notes of spice, earth and smoke. Fairly complex, medium to full bodied, tightly wound showing some astringency. There’s a lot going on within a narrow range. It’s a deep thinker, fastidious with a closed, prickly demeanor as easily prone to outbursts as withdrawal. This Gamay varietal is a reasonably good value. Others have rated this quite highly; here, it’s a good wine. (Reviewed 6/15/12)
