Vins Descombe wishes you a Happy New Year and the best things for 2021!
In 2021, join us in the "tube attitude" !!
Beaujolais Nouveau 2020 released ! With our estate Château de Pougelon, we make a Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau, that come from a part of our Beaujolais-Villages vines. We search for a fresh, fruity and pleasant wine, but we also have a bit of structure to keep our DNA.
Our Morgon 2018 Château de Pougelon has been awarded by Two Stars and a special mention of the jury "coup de coeur" in the new Hachette Guide 2021.
Two Stars rewarding a outstanding wine !
Congrats too for Petit-Chablis 2017 Domaine Passy le Clou who's received One Star.
The « Tube » or Type H takes us back to the 60's when Vins Descombe used to make deliveries to local bars and restaurants with this striking truck. It's a piece of family history! It represents an era and an attitude... You too can join in the Tube Attitude.
Our Fleurie 2018 and Beaujolais-Villages 2018 will be listed on the popular Hachette Wine Guide 2020. A high recognition for our Beaujolais fine wines !
Saint Amour 2017 Florent Descombe:
“While the wine has all the bright red fruits you would expect from this appellation, it also has a firmly tannic edge that will allow it to age. It is ripe with fruitiness and acidity to match”
Morgon 2017 Florent Descombe:
“From the famous Côte du Py vineyard, this wine has considerable structure. Its black fruits and rich tannins are typical of this granite terroir. The wine also has juicy red fruits that are developing and will come to dominate from 2019.”
Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy 2017 Domaine Passy le Clou:
“This wine comes from a small parcel of vines in this 75-acre estate. A touch of caramel fills out the rich palate and gives weight to the citrus and apple flavors and tight minerality. A young wine, it needs to age. Drink from 2020”
Marine Descombe and our China Sales team were pleased to present Vins Descombe at the Tang Jiu Hui exhibition, in Chengdu ( China).
Chengdu has been recorded as one of the city with highest economic growth: a good opportunity to meet new Chinese customers, and introduce our company in the western Chinese market.
