Wine Description:
Domaine Jean-Ernest Descombes Morgon is a distinguished red wine produced in the Beaujolais region of France, specifically from the Morgon appellation, which is one of the ten crus of Beaujolais.

Wine Expert Note:

Domaine Jean-Ernest Descombes Morgon typically exhibits a rich and aromatic bouquet, characterized by notes of ripe red and dark berries, cherries, and a hint of earthy and floral nuances. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with a velvety texture, showcasing the Gamay grape's characteristic smooth tannins. Flavors of juicy raspberry, blackberry, and subtle hints of spice and minerality are beautifully integrated, leading to a well-rounded and persistent finish. This Morgon is a superb example of the complexity and elegance that can be achieved in Beaujolais, offering a refined and satisfying experience that is both approachable in its youth and capable of developing further complexity with age. It pairs exceptionally well with a variety of foods, from charcuterie and cheese to poultry and grilled dishes. Read more

Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
