Wine About It: Beaujolais Nouveau

We know, we know. We’re a little tardy on our November feature, but for good reason – 1. we’re law abiding citizens and 2. knew this one would be worth the wait.

If you’re not familiar with the hype, the annual release of Beaujolais Nouveau is no joke – by law, a drop of it can’t be sold until the third Thursday of November, and it was even stricter back in the day…the wine couldn’t even leave Beaujolais until the day of, so there was a frantic rush after midnight to get everyone their wine in time for breakfast. Serious business. 

But don’t take our word for it – our friend and knower-of-all-things wine from Heritage Wine Cellars, Ethan Brown, lays it out short and sweet:

Each year, Beaujolais Nouveau is released to eager fans who appreciate its lively, slightly tart taste with grilled or roasted meats.

Perfect for your Thanksgiving feast, it provides a preview of the year’s harvest from France’s Beaujolais region.

With soft tannins and youthful, fruity aromas, Beaujolais Nouveau is meant to be enjoyed right away, with great food and company.

Join the celebration and snag your bottle(s) here for your Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving, or just a Monday night in. Cheers!
