Georges DuBoeuf – 2009 Morgon Jean Descombes Beaujolais

I picked up this wine because of three things – a great review, a great price, and my husband’s beaujolais phase (which I think is now rubbing off on me).  This wine, in short, is a tremendous value, and a fabulous experience.  The color is a crystal garnet, and foretells the medium/medium-light body of this wine.  The aromas are quite nice – lots of red fruit, including red cherry, mingled with a light, earth smokiness.  I found the flavors to be quite nice – extremely well balanced, with definite cherry and raspberry, and the tannins were nicely reserved.  The spicy notes were also delightful, and followed through the finish, which I particularly enjoyed.  This wine paired exquisitely with pork loin medallions glazed with a balsamic cherry wine sauce.
