1 x Domaine Jean Descombes Morgon Cote du Py 2020 - Burgundy, France

90/100 Wine Enthusiast (2019 vintage)
92/100 James Suckling (2017 vintage)
91/100 James Suckling (2016 vintage)

James Suckling "One of the best ever. Drink now. Pretty aromas of strawberries, flowers and hints of dust follow through to a full body that is compact and tight with very vibrant acidity. Flavorful finish."

Decanter "Very good now and with the legs to improve.Textured and bullish, with layers of black fruits, raspberries and blueberries bound in grippy tannins."

Wine & Spirits "Best Buy!"

Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast "Named after a family that has been in Morgon since the French Revolution, this wine shows powerful tannins and rich black fruits. It offers spice, layers of fruit and acidity, with a dry core that shows aging potential. Drink from 2021."

Wine Advocate ~ “One of Dubeouf's best this year.... bursts from the glass with a lavish bouquet of cassis, plums and cherries. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and juicy, with supple but chewy tannins, a generous core of fruit and a comparatively elegant profile.” (2017 vintage)

Wine & Spirits "Descombes was the first grower Georges Duboeuf worked with when he started his firm in 1968. This domaine is now run by Descombes’s daughter, Nicole Descombes Savoye, who produces this wine for Duboeuf from close to 30 acres with a southeast-facing exposition, the vines ranging in age from 50 to 100 years old. Made with destemmed grapes in a partial carbonic maceration, the wine is all raspberry, meadow flowers and iron-edged tannins. And it’s the tannins that last, detailed in their mineral expression, suiting the wine to long aging."

Nicole Descombes Savoye is known asthe Queen of Beaujolais”. Her family has been in the famous Morgon winemaking region since the French Revolution. Nicole’s father - the great and late Jean Ernst - which this wine is named after - is considered one of the great winemakers of the Morgon.

Les Vins Georges Duboeuf is one of the largest wine producers in France founded by the late Georges Duboeuf who was affectionately known as 'le roi du Beaujolais' (the King of Beaujolais) or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (Pope of Beaujolais). Les Vins Georges Duboeuf produces a staggering 3 million cases of wine annually. The company is most well-known for its popularization and production of Beaujolais wines. In 2018 Georges’ passed control of his company to his son Franck Duboeuf, who is considered to be one of the key specialists in Beaujolais, its terroir and its wine, and has shifted production to focus more on Beaujolais Nouveau.

The second largest of the 10 Crus of Beaujolais in Greater Burgundy, Morgon is comprised of six climate all with slightly different styles. Their unifying feature is the decomposed schist soil called roches pourries or “rotted rocks” and locals believe this contributes to the ripe cherry aromas found in all the wines. These are wines meant to age 5–10 years (at least). The young, fleshy palate of peach, apricot, cherry, and plum will develop into a more earthy wine reminiscent of Burgundian Pinot Noir. Of the 10 crus of Beaujolais, this is the closest to Moulin-a-Vent in terms of weight and structure, and it can age nearly as well. It has a firm minerality, thanks chiefly to its granitic soils, and a fruit profile that shades towards orange.

Beaujolais is an important wine region of eastern France in the southern part of "Greater Burgundy". It is famous for its vibrant, fruity red wines made from Gamay. The widespread plantings of Gamay here make Beaujolais one of the few regions of the world to be so focused on a single grape variety. Cru Beaujolais is the highest and most-esteemed classification in the region. There are 10 crus within the Beaujolais classification, each referring to a winemaking region, rather than an individual vineyard, as in nearby Burgundy. Crus range in style, from lighter-bodied and younger-drinking to fuller, age-worthy wines. The 10 Beaujolais crus are: Brouilly, Chénas, Chiroubles, Côte de Brouilly, Fleurie, Juliénas, Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent, Régnié, and Saint-Amour.

Wine Enthusiast "This wine has structure as well as vibrant black fruits. Its juicy, fruity character contrasts with the open, perfumed flavors."

Decanter "A balanced and complex palate combining a textured palate with lightness of fruit flavour. It has an amazing ability to taste deep and rich but be elegant, light and refreshing on the palate. Very impressive with supple black berry flavours alongside a minerality that comes through as wet stones, chalk and metal. It finishes on a slightly spiced mint note. Again, like La Rochelle, you can really taste terroir - grapes come from a single-vineyard plot located above the windmill at the top of the appellation with eastern exposure sitting in a wind tunnel that affects their maturation and concentration. Soils are sandy granite with an underlayer of clay."

Wine Spectator "Blackberry compote and dark cherry flavors are encased by velvety tannins in this light-bodied red, with floral and spice details lingering into the finish. Drink now through 2024."

Decanter "With 2018, Moulin-à-Vent has experienced four great vintages in a row and while they maybe a little less colour and concentration than in 2017, the quality is extremely high with quantity to match."

The Winemaker “A crimson colour with intense, complex aromas including floral scents (roses, peonies), dark berry aromas and hints of kirsch, sweet spices and pepper. Full, rich and fleshy on the palate, its tannins are mentholated, silky and distinctive, giving the wine a good structure. We recommend to taste this wine at 15-16 °C.”

Domaine du Pourpre is a family-run estate in the commune of Chénas. The Meziat family has been running it for 5 generations. Vines are more than 50 years old.

This wine is produced by Les Vins Georges Duboeuf which is one of the largest wine producers in France founded by the late Georges Duboeuf who was affectionately known as 'le roi du Beaujolais' (the king of Beaujolais) or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (Pope of Beaujolais).

Moulin-à-Vent is situated in the north of the Beaujolais region in France. It is one of the most famous crus and named after the local windmill – the literal translation of the name. It is a historic appellation with a vine-growing history dating back hundreds of years. It was officially granted appellation status in 1936 – one of the first in the country.

Decanter "Moulin-à-Vent is considered the ‘king’ of the ten Beaujolais crus for the power, concentration, structure and ageability of its wines."

Beaujolais is an important wine region of eastern France in the southern part of Burgundy, famous for its vibrant, fruity red wines made from Gamay. It is located immediately south of Burgundy, of which it is sometimes considered to be a part, despite being within the Rhone administrative region. The widespread plantings of Gamay here make Beaujolais one of the few regions of the world to be so focused on a single grape variety. In some vintages, Beaujolais produces more wine than the Burgundy wine regions of Chablis, Côte d'Or, Côte Chalonnaise and Mâconnais put together.

Gamay is a grape variety that is most famous for producing the light, fruit-driven red wines of Beaujolais. While the variety offers fresh, red-fruit and candied aromas, it typically delivers little in the way of flavor concentration and body weight, giving light, simple wines.

Drinks International "One of the “Ten Most Admired Wine Brands” in the world."

Wine Advocate “Georges Duboeuf is the #1 selling brand of Beaujolais in the world”

This wine is from a small one-hectare plot situated below the Côte du Py in the locality of Javernières. Winemaker Jean-Paul Brun has achieved outstanding reviews for several of his wines, including a 95 score from Decanter for his 2013 Terres Dorées Chardonnay Classic.

Beaujolais is an important wine region in eastern France, immediately to the south of Burgundy, famous for its vibrant, fruity red wines made from Gamay. The widespread plantings of Gamay here make Beaujolais one of the few regions of the world to be so focused on a single grape variety.

The Beaujolais region's rise to prominence began in the 19th Century and was earned by its youthful, fruity nouveau wines. With no barrel aging at all, these are sold and consumed only weeks after harvest and are officially released on the third Thursday in November.

Gamay is a grape variety that is most famous for producing the light, fruit-driven red wines of Beaujolais. While the variety offers fresh, red-fruit and candied aromas, it typically delivers little in the way of flavor concentration and body weight, giving light, simple wines.

1 x Georges Duboeuf Bourgogne Aligote 2019 - Burgundy, France

The Winemaker “Sparkling pale gold color, with aromas of citrus fruit enhanced with scents of white flowers. The mouth is full, mineral and fruity, with a nice tension that invigorates the finish. To be served chilled.”

This wine is produced by Les Vins Georges Duboeuf which is one of the largest wine producers in France founded by the late Georges Duboeuf who was affectionately known as 'le roi du Beaujolais' (the king of Beaujolais) or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (Pope of Beaujolais).

Aligoté is a white grape used to make dry white wines, especially in the Burgundy region of France where it was first recorded in the 18th century. DNA profiling has proven it to be a member of the wider Pinot family, of which Chardonnay is also a member. The variety is at its best in the wines of the regional Bourgogne Aligoté appellation, and particularly in Bouzeron, in the northern Côte Chalonnaise. Aligote also has a key role in the sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne wines.

Bourgogne Aligoté is the appellation within Burgundy for white wines made from the Aligoté grape variety, created in July 1937. In the past five years, its reputation has grown considerably. Bourgogne Aligoté is now appreciated by wine lovers for its vivacity and thirst-quenching qualities, and is popular among a hip young clientele.

Georges Duboeuf (14 April 1933 – 4 January 2020) was an award winning French wine producer and merchant, and the founder of Les Vins Georges Duboeuf: one of the largest wine producers in France. Duboeuf produces a staggering 3 million cases of wine annually. The company is most well-known for its popularization and production of Beaujolais wines, leading to Duboeuf's nicknames of le roi du Beaujolais or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (the king or pope of Beaujolais). In 2018 Georges’ passed control of his company to his son Franck Duboeuf.

James Suckling "Aromas of cooked apple, mango, peach and vanilla. It’s full-bodied and creamy with concentrated, ripe flavors. Lingering lemon curd, almonds and stones on the finish."

VertdeVin "The nose is fruity, fresh, and offers good definition, fine gourmandize and precision. There are hints of fresh apple, lychee and slightly citrus (tangerine, quince) combined with hints of white flowers, crunchy berries and a very discreet hint of carambola. The palate is fruity, precise, chiselled and reveals minerality, freshness, sharpness, precision and juiciness. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of juicy peach, fleshy nectarine and, more slightly, ripe lemon, combined with hints of lychee and a subtle hint of quenette, white flowers and a very discreet hint of toasted almond in the background, some nutmeg and butter in the aftertaste."

Wine Spectator "An opulent white, with a plump texture embracing peach, pear and butterscotch flavors. Brisk acidity gives this shape, while the long finish evokes a lightly tannic feel."

Andreas Larsson - Tasted "Bright light golden colour. Pure nose displaying ripe yellow fruit, a hint of almond and fresh butter, no evident oak. Pure and fresh palate with medium weight and volume, a fruitier example with toned down oak, rather ripe yellow fruit notes with some nuttiness, mild extract and a fairly long warm finish."

Le Hachette des Vins "Very elegant in its yellow gold color with green reflections, this 2019 delivers intense scents of hawthorn and pine mixed with the mineral notes of the terroir. The palate displays a lot of richness from the attack, volume and intensity. A wine of character, with a promising future."

James Suckling "Aromas of cooked apples and honey with hints of hot stone and honeysuckle. Medium body, lovely honey character and freshness. Long and flavorful." (2018 vintage)

Le Hachette des Vins "This brilliant Pouilly-Fuissé with pistachio highlights offers a complex olfaction bringing together woody scents (brioche, butter, nutmeg) with softer notes of peach, apricot and acacia flowers. A lively attack gives way to a supple, floral and long palate." (2018 vintage)

Pouilly-Fuissé is the home of the finest white wines of southern Burgundy's Maconnais district. They are produced exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown in the communes of Chaintré, Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly and Vergisson. The typical Pouilly-Fuissé wine is full-bodied, ripe and relatively elegant, with the best examples rivaling the finer wines of the Côte de Beaune. The zone currently covers around 800 hectares (2000 acres) of hillside vineyards, planted on limestone-rich clay soils over a granitic base. The 500m (1640ft) limestone escarpment known as the Roche de Solutré is located at the heart of the appellation's vine-growing area and towers over the vineyards below. The Clos Reyssié in particular is the most famous terroir in the village of Chaintré, one of the four villages in the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation.

Burgundy (Bourgogne in French) is an historic and highly respected wine region in eastern France. Burgundy wines have long had devout followers throughout the world and continue to do so today. Although Bordeaux produces about four times as much wine every year, Burgundy’s estimated 74,000 acres (30,000ha) of vineyards are considered to be of equal importance, producing some of the most exclusive wines on Earth.

Wine Advocate “Georges Duboeuf is the #1 selling brand of Beaujolais in the world” (2009-2013)

Les Vins Georges Duboeuf is one of the largest wine producers in France founded by the late Georges Duboeuf who was affectionately known as 'le roi du Beaujolais' (the king of Beaujolais) or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (Pope of Beaujolais). Les Vins Georges Duboeuf produces a staggering 3 million cases of wine annually.

The company is most well-known for its popularization and production of Beaujolais wines. In 2018 Georges’ passed control of his company to his son Franck Duboeuf, who is considered to be one of the key specialists in Beaujolais, its terroir and its wine, and has shifted production to focus more on Beaujolais Nouveau. No wonder Drinks International calls it "One of the “Ten Most Admired Wine Brands” in the world."

Beaujolais is an important wine region in eastern France, immediately to the south of Burgundy, famous for its vibrant, fruity red wines made from Gamay. The widespread plantings of Gamay here make Beaujolais one of the few regions of the world to be so focused on a single grape variety.

The Beaujolais region's rise to prominence began in the 19th Century and was earned by its youthful, fruity nouveau wines. With no barrel aging at all, these are sold and consumed only weeks after harvest and are officially released on the third Thursday in November.

Gamay is a grape variety that is most famous for producing the light, fruit-driven red wines of Beaujolais. While the variety offers fresh, red-fruit and candied aromas, it typically delivers little in the way of flavor concentration and body weight, giving light, simple wines.
