Beaujolais Nouveau Day marks the wine’s release and takes place annually on the third Thursday of November. What’s Beaujolais Nouveau? Lets first look at what is Beaujolais.

Beaujolais is a wine region in eastern France, located south of the Burgundy region and north of the city of Lyon, is a rural area of gentle hills, dotted with villages and covered in vines and roughly 50 miles from the border with Switzerland. Regional wines are often small family owned businesses and are primarily made using the Gamay variety. This one grape, characterized by its colour, bright purple juice with fresh acidity and medium bodied.

Though Beaujolais had the reputation in France as a cheap table wine often served in carafes.  It didn’t reach the prices of Bordeaux and Burgundy, and many growers were not able to bottle their own wines. Beaujolais Nouveau Day helped by bring international attention to this modest wine region and the opportunity to sell wine right after harvest brought much-needed money to local winemakers and growers.

Join in the tradition of Beaujolais Nouveau this Novemeber.  A versatile wine that pairs with a range of foods; roasted white meats like chicken, turkey, and pork, as well as light salads.

Remember:

Beaujolais Nouveau – consume as soon as possible.

Beaujolais – best consumed within the first year or two of bottling

Cru Beaujolais, however, is capable of aging for up to 10 years.

A votre santé!
