2017 Beaujolais Cru
There's never been a better time to buy Beaujolais
You'll find examples of all 10 villages here, from some of
Beaujolais' finest winemakers, and all from 2017. Though a
small vintage due to widespread hail damage, 2017 produced
classically styled Beaujolais with pure ripe fruit and attractive
perfume. Most are ready to uncork immediately, but your
patience will be rewarded if you age these a while longer.
With Burgundy prices little short of stratospheric, savvy drinkers
are turning their attentions a few dozen kilometres south, where
authentic wines with character and individuality can be found at
much less eye-watering prices.
I hope you enjoy my selection!
