Beaujolais Nouveau 2018 Anura Guruge



I was hooked on it after the second sip. Rich, velvety and robust. I am a habitual red wine drinker and this comes across as a wine punching well above its weight.

It does belies its newness; it comes across as more cultured than what one expects from a Nouveau.

It definitely is reminiscent of the Beaujolais Nouveaus from the last few years and that is not a bad thing (at all) since we lucked out in those years.

I would, indubitably, call this a ‘GOOD ONE’.

Last year’s was a good and this, to I, seems marginally better. A touch of unexpected velvetiness that makes it feel rich and fulfilling.

I like it. I like it a lot.

Georges Duboeuf yet again appears to have done us proud.

Yes, of course, it has the tannin that it is supposed to — which makes it tart and ‘tight’. But, that goes with the territory so to speak. If it wasn’t tart it would not be a Beaujolais Nouveau.

Yes, it also has a very pleasant fruity aroma. A touch of berries.

As is my wont I made a special trip and bought four bottles. Yes, the price has gone up again — by a dollar, I think. Not much in the overall scheme of things, but still a shame. Keeping it under $10 made it feel like a bargain.

Bottom Line: a very decent wine that is punching well above its weight.

You really should try it out.

Happy Beaujolais Nouveau 2018.

Cheers.
