Its November and that means the 2007 Beaujolais Nouveau is about to be released. This is a special category of 7 to 9 week old wine that by French tradition is released annually on the third Thursday of November. This year that date falls on November 15th. This new wine is sometimes called Beaujolais Primeur and is meant to be drank very young. Because it is so young and not meant to age, it is best drank within a month or two.
No matter where you are most any French restaurant or wine bar should have some kind of tasting celebrating the release of Beaujolais Nouveau. We plan to be at Marche Bacchus for their celebration and a special menu. If you see us there stop by and say Bonjour!
