2018 Georges Descombes Fleurie 'Vieilles Vignes' Gamay

Beaujolais, France

Warm and dry 2018 vintage produced Beaujolais wines that are ripe and lush, but lower in alcohol, with brighter, fresh aromas. This superb wine is from the famed Grille-Midi section of Fleurie - Yvon Metras has his vines here too. This has a super granite/floral nose that is very attractive, particularly the top notes of strawberries and violets. This is a super bottle; sweet, fresh, crunchy - perfect balance and super length.

About the maker

After taking over from his father in 1988, Georges now farms 15 hectares of organic certified plots across part of which is this exceptional Beaujolais plot

In stark contrast to the conventional fields of Gamay that look like something from the moon in the winter months, Georges's parcel has bright green ground covered in ready to bloom flowers. Georges falls into the natural category, unlike others in Beaujolais, with certified organic farming, fermenting with indigenous yeasts in a low temperature semi-carbonic style with minimal to zero sulphur used. Descombes is a true master of this type of winemaking - starting of course with great farming, bringing out beautifully complex aromas and gorgeous fruit on the palate, undiminished by excess SO2, beautifully balanced, clean and long. In short, the Descombes wines are among the finest and most consistent in Beaujolais.
