Étienne de Bailly Beaujolais Nouveau 2018 2018

There’s nothing like Beaujolais Nouveau …
Picked in September, gently pressed, and bottled for early release in November. It’s the ultimate reminder that wine is made to be enjoyed. Not always scored, debated, or cellared. Just uncorked and shared (at its fresh peak) with good friends.

Remarkable pedigree and a legendary vintage
Dominique Piron is a 14th-generation winemaker whose ancestor Etienne Bailly was born in the Cru village of Morgon in 1590. La Revue du Vin, France’s top wine magazine, calls Dominique “a perfectionist,” and his tireless efforts have earned him great respect amongst his peers (not to mention his devoted customers).

What’s more, 2018 “will go down in history as one of the legendary vintages,” (The Drinks Business), so you’ll need to be FAST to secure your share. If you luck out and get your hands on some, give it an hour in the fridge before serving. The light chill will bring out the wine’s vibrant, red-fruit flavors and gentle spice (then watch the open bottle disappear in a flash).
