Kewin Descombes is one of the most precocious talents in Beaujolais. Son of the great Georges Descombes, he has Gamay running through his veins.
This superb Morgon is derived from three separately vinified parcels of organic old-vine Gamay from hilly sites. Naturally fermented and bottled without added sulphites.
True to form in Morgon this is bold and dark, the mid-palate brings brightness and levity, there's still serious structure and grip to it, unfurling to a long, smoky finish. Rich aroma of sweet dark-red fruit but also quite evolved and expressive, with a sweet almost floral note as well as the fruit. The fruit on the palate is rich and generous, counterbalanced by excellent freshness. Delicious in a completely unpretentious and joyous way!
