2019 Kéké Descombes Cuvée Kéké
Kewin - or Kéké to his mates - has Beaujolais in his blood.
The son of Georges Descombes, close mate and occasional, unofficial fifth member of Kermit Lynch's famous “Gang of Four” of Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thévenet, Jean Foillard & Guy Breton, it was almost inevitable that Kéké would follow a similar path. This again has textbook Beaujolais aromas of blueberries, vine sap, earth, flowers and iodine. Whistle clean, bright and uplifting this is light to medium-bodied and wonderfully pure. The juicy ripe fruit is laced with slate and stems that push the flavours long in the mouth. Fluid and vibrant acidity keeps things fresh and adds a tang to the finish that keeps calling you back for another sip. Brilliant!
