born into a family of winegrowers, georges descombes is a rising figure in the beaujolais region who, as the revue du vin de france so aptly puts it, is promised "good days ahead. healthy cultivation, sulphur-free vinification and full carbonic maceration produce wines that are as energetic as they are long-lasting. georges descombes is classically from a family of winemakers for several generations. however, he was the only one willing to take care of the family vineyards. after attending viticulture school, he signed his first vintage in 1987 from the brouilly parcels inherited from his grandmother. this did not prevent him from continuing to work part-time in a bottling company and, as if that were not enough, to work two days a week for other winegrowers in the area. it was only in 1993 that georges descombes devoted himself totally to his estate, which today covers 17 hectares: about seven in morgon and the rest, in decreasing order, in brouilly, régnié, chiroubles, beaujolais-villages and beaujolais. even in his early days, georges descombes was never a winegrower who was very familiar with chemical treatment. for more than ten years, he has been working his vines according to organic principles, using weed killers only in very steep plots that are impossible to plow. since the beginning, most of his vines are ploughed, the fermentation is started by indigenous yeasts, and the vinification is done without sulphur in concrete, stainless steel and epoxy tanks, in full carbonic maceration. since 1993, the harvest is cooled in order to obtain longer and softer vinifications, as it is practiced at the jean foillard estate.
