Bon Beaujolais Nouveau les amis!

Beaujolais Nouveau

It’s that time of year again! The 3rd Thursday of November  at exactly 12:01 AM marks the launch of the new harvested wine the French call “Beaujolais Nouveau”  just in time to enjoy  and celebrate with the  Thanksgiving meal!

In the US , the most popular Beaujolais Nouveau is George Duboeuf! It is a young wine bottled just 6-8 weeks after harvest and to be enjoyed immediately and a bit chilled.  It is made from the Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc grape  known as Gamay from the Beaujolais AOC  region.

Beaujolais Nouveau is so popular , it even has its own website: http://www.beaujolaisnouveauday.com/

Cheers and to new beginnings!
