Jean Descombes Morgon, 2002

I always hold and drink Jean Descombes Morgon longer than anyone I know. I like aged Gamay, and this is an excellent example.

Medium light color with some bricking. Fresh and dried berries, sweet and lovely. Also some floral scents. Lacks the distinctive spice of a good Pinot but has a similar texture and intensity. Savory as well as sweet with a long and interesting finish. The bouquet, though, is the thing; worth the price of admission.
