Many growers are comparing their 2018s with other recent warm vintages, such as 2005, 2009 and 2015. Some have even compared them to the legendary 1947.
The reds are characterised by deep colours and opulent fruit, being ripe, intense with depth and fine tannins to help the better crus age. The few wines we have tried so far have been impressive down the entire region. The better Beaujolais crus are decent as well.
The whites are fresh, rich and fleshy. The better growers have retained acidity and terroir expression by picking early and by blocking any malolactic fermentations.
So far we tried several superb wines from Jadot, Faiveley and a few others. We will offer most of our favourites as they are released. Let us know your interest soon as producers and critics are already hyping up 2018 as another great vintage.
