Morgon \\ Beaujolais \\ France
Kewin – or Kéké to his friends – has Beaujolais in his blood.
Son of Georges Descombes, scion of the fêted “Gang of Four”, and half-brother to correspondingly precocious Damien Coquelet, it was almost inevitable that Kéké would follow a similar path.
He works six hectares of certified organic vineyards in Morgon and his wines have all the pretty poise, acid and elegance you’d expect from this heritage, and a refinement, structure and confidence that belies his age. Still just in his twenties, Kéké is unambiguously one of the region’s brightest young talents.
