"2018 Morgon “Vieilles Vignes”- Domaine Georges Descombes Georges Descombes’ 2018 Morgon “Vieilles Vignes” is another excellent example of the vintage, with the same sort of structural stability found in his old vine Chiroubles from this year. The nose is deep, pure and sappy, wafting from the glass in a black fruity blend of sweet blackberries, black cherries, bonfire, roasted gamebird, a dollop of fresh herbs, raw cocoa and a superb base of granitic soil tones. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and beautifully transparent down to its mineral foundation, with a rock solid core of fruit, ripe, buried tannins and excellent focus and grip on the long, complex and very promising finish. 2025-2055. 92."
