Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé! 2019

Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!

It’s that time of year again, Beaujolais Nouveau has arrived! The 3rd Thursday of November at exactly 12:01 AM marks the launch of the newly 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! Georges Duboeuf and family is a premium producer of award-winning French wines from the Beaujolais and Mâconnais regions of Burgundy and the South of France. His company, Les Vins Georges Duboeuf, brings to the market wines renowned for their quality and value. They work closely with hundreds of small family winegrowers to procure the highest quality fruit throughout the region, as well as export many small Chateau and Estate-produced wines that would otherwise not be able to bring their wines to the US.  Les Vins Georges Duboeuf is imported by Quintessential Wines, based in Napa, California.

This year’s winner for the 2019 Annual George Dubeouf Beaujolais Nouveau Label Competition is Laura Runge a Texas-born artist from Dallas.

Beaujolais Nouveau is a fun unpretentious young wine bottled just 6-8 weeks after harvest to be enjoyed immediately and lightly chilled.  Made from the Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc grape known as Gamay from the Beaujolais AOC – Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée region, it is fresh, fruity and vibrant.  The tradition of Nouveau began when the winemakers and growers of the Beaujolais region celebrated the end of harvest with a young wine that was initially only produced for local consumption.
