This first-class Morgon features a bright garnet color and great harmony of aromas between cherry, kirsch and peach. Heady and structured, with substantial tannins, it has a rich, round and silky mouthfeel - a wine with concentrated flavors. There is great aging potential for the 2015 vintage.

Wine EnthusiastThe Descombes family has farmed vines in this appellation since the French Revolution and Jean-Ernest Descombes supplied one of Georges Duboeuf's first Morgon wines in 1968. The latest generation has produced a ripe and fruity wine with a balanced structure. It is dense in tannins that will soften over the next year. Drink from 2018.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Morgon Jean Descombes felt a little reduced on the nose, although there are attractive wild strawberry and raspberry preserve scents waiting to unfold. The palate is medium-bodied, fleshy and plum with red cherries, strawberry and a touch of orange rind. Nicely focused with a keen thread of acidity towards the finish maintaining freshness, this should turn out to be a very fine Morgon with 12-18 months in bottle.

Wine SpectatorBlack currant, wild tangy blackberry and smoky mineral notes are supported by grippy tannins in this well-knit red. Peppercorn and licorice details mark the juicy finish. Drink now through 2020. 1,500 cases made.
