Light tannins and a smoky mineral note frame this lush red which displays layers of black cherry raspberry ganache and tea rose flavors. There's a spicy thread running through the wine leading to a fresh firm finish...

Effusively and sweetly fruity as usual the 2009 Morgon Jean Descombes (tasted from tank) is scented with creme de cassis black raspberry preserves and pear liqueur; silkenly saturates the palate with rich yet infectiously juicy fruit concentrate; and introduces a saline note that along with its sense of juicy freshness makes for a stimulating finish. This perennially outstanding value will probably pick up more complexity over the next 12-18 months and be worth following for at least twice that long. (That said in the form of La Chaponne and Mont Chavy Jean Descombes has for a change got serious competition in this vintage from within the Duboeuf portfolio.) -David Schildknecht
