I've had one, and I don't really Beaujolais vintages, so i can't comment on the style of the vintage; but I found this one very compelling:

Pierre-Marie Chermette, Les Trois Roches, Moulin a Vent 2017
Exceptional, lovely nose, with cherry/raspberry, blackberry, black currant, all very meaty, with abundant spice and loads of smokey stone/earth; outstanding depth and fragrance. On the palate, sweet, succulent, meaty cherry / raspberry, blackberry, black currant, a touch of mint tobacco leaf, generous spice and black pepper (with a bit of heat even), then tons of smokey / salty stone / mineral. Very full bodied, with outstanding density, grip, and acid tone, with a long, mineral laden finish; very fresh, succulent but also very savory in texture. Outstanding, the best Beaujolais I have ever had, so complete and satisfying. 5 to 10 years ahead, perhaps as much as 15. 4 Stars [4/27/19]

Thanks, Ryan! Just ordered some.

And, motivated, popped a 2017 Thivin. It’s fantastic. Ordering yet more. I accidentally have almost killed the whole bottle through dinner and reading news.

I frequently have the same problem.
