As the clock struck midnight on this third Thursday of November, the French release their young Beaujolais wine to the masses.
This year is Georges Deboeuf’s 30th vintage release of his Beaujolais Nouveau.
Beaujolais is made with the Gamay grape. It is a fruity, light bodied red wine with very low tannins which makes it an easy to drink wine. Serve it well chilled to bring out its fruitiness.
Beaujolais Nouveau is very food friendly and is usually under $11 which makes it very affordable. A light, and easy drinking wine to enjoy with family and friends this holiday week.
