I used to buy three or four bottles of this wine every vintage, but apparently I bought only one from the 2006 vintage. And I may have waited a bit long to open it. It is still an enjoyable wine but a bit muted in personality.
Light garnet. Muted scents of smoke, pomegranate and old oak. From the beginning, the flavors are more forthcoming and pleasant than the smells. Delicate cherry with some citric acidity.
I have found aging of Jean Descombes Morgon to be unpredictable. The 1995, 2002 and 2005 vintages showed a lot of staying power, certainly more than this 2006.
