2018 Beaujolais is an outstanding vintage - perhaps the best weand#39;ve ever seen. This wine is a dream to drink right now and will be for many years to come.andnbsp;Lapierre is one of the best Beaujolais producers and for the money, and it is so hard to beat this wine. There is a big difference between andldquo;Cruandrdquo; Beaujolais and what you may have heard of called Beaujolais Nouveau.andnbsp; Nouveau is the cheap and cheerful stuff that comes out each year around Thanksgiving.andnbsp; It is the young, fresh wine made from grapes harvested a few months earlier, whereas Cru Beaujolais is something entirely different. This one from Lapierre comes from the cru Morgon. This is a low tannin, easy drinking lighter red that is also nice to serve with a little chill.andnbsp;Roast yourself a chicken and pair it with this guy!andnbsp;It is affordable, delicious and more than complex enough to keep your attention.
