Georges Dubœuf “Jean Descombes” Morgon 2004

Georges Dubœuf Jean Descombes Morgon 2004

I’ve been getting back into Beaujolais, and have had some very pleasant bottles recently. This was in the middle of the pack. Perhaps I should have reviewed one of the better ones, like the Clos de Haute Combe Julienas. Luckily I have another bottle of that and promise to scratch down a note about it later. Anyway, on to this wine. There was some browning, with a nose of dried berries, raspberry fruits, earthy and gamy undertones, old black pepper and a touch of banana skin. The palate is fleshy, with sour cherries, pleasant fruit sweetness, pomegranate molasses, caramel hints and some brown notes. The acid is quite prominent and the finish is sweet with some soft green fruits characters. Not overly complex, but very enjoyable. Looks ready to go, and I think it would be safest to drink over the short term.
