2019 Georges Descombes Brouilly Vieilles Vignes
Every year this is one of the great wines of Beaujolais by all measures.
From 2019 the first hint at quality is, as usual, the vibrant colour you can see literally the richness and depth, then the billowing perfume. Georges produced superb 2019 wines, none of the heaviness found in some of the wines of his peers, his are very fresh - aromas are bright and crystal clear with entrancing aromas of red/black cherries and hints of sweet kirsch. The taste is energetic, fresh and focused, with juicy fruit, fresh acidity and a firm mineral grip. The 2019 vintage has provided serious concentration but it has beautiful tension, balance and length.
