Beaujolais Nouveau is Released

Red wine with fruit basket | www.wineladycooks.com

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.

    Actually, this is the day that Beaujolais Nouveau is released in France which they have been doing for many years. It has been brought to the states for release on the 3rd Thursday of November to keep up with the French tradition. I made up the blog title for fun.

We love comments. Thank you for stopping by!
