History

The story of a wine is often closely linked to that of a man. Jean Ernest DESCOMBES was a very popular figure in the Beaujolais, 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 thirty years. His welcoming cellars were visited by a large number of journalists and members of the wine trade, who came to taste his fine bottles.

Today it is his daughter Nicole who has taken up the torch with a dynamism that would have made her father proud. Concerning him, she always says that wine always resembles the person who made it.

An outstanding winegrower, Jean-Ernest DESCOMBES was also a gifted winemaker. His vines are planted in the best terroirs, notably that of the Côte du Py, a hill of eruptive origin : a local peculiarity that sits at the heart of the Morgon appellation. This very deep and well-draining soil allows the Gamay grapes to ripen and develop in ideal conditions.

Tasting

Brilliant purple color. After a little airing this very powerful wine has a nose that opens on notes of cherries kirch, licorice but also notes of violets. The mouth of a beautiful concentration evolves gently with round and delicate tannins. A very pleasant Morgon but with a very good ageing potential.
