Its that time of year again , its BEAUJOLAIS NOUVEAU As part of the national celebration Nouveau Expression, French Beaujolais winemaker and longtime arts supporter Georges Duboeuf is bringing a party of the senses to Las Vegas at a Nouveau Expression food and wine tasting on Friday, November 18 at the newly opened Butterfly in the Chateau Nightclub & Gardens at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Presented by Georges Duboeuf, the party will include: sweets from Paris’ Sugar Factory, a custom designed wine bottle-shaped cake for guests to enjoy and a celebratory midnight toast with the highly anticipated 2011 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau.
Admission is $30 upon entry and includes a complimentary glass of Beaujolais Nouveau for the midnight toast. The 2011 vintage will also be available at Chateau Nightclub and Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Las Vegas during its debut weekend (November 19-20).
The event also celebrates the first taste of the 2011 vintage as it coincides with the arrival of the 2011 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau, a fresh and fruity red wine made from the local Gamay grape that is released after midnight annually on the third Thursday in November. The 2011 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau, with a first-ever graffiti-inspired label designed by renowned Brooklyn artist “Kaves,” will be available nationwide at a retail price of $10. Nouveau is a very popular wine for serving during the holidays; its ripe berry aromas and flavors are food-friendly and versatile with many dishes.
“Nouveau Expression is a celebration of creativity, self expression and enjoying the moment. It's a fun, vibrant new way for Duboeuf to connect with Beaujolais Nouveau enthusiasts through art and for people to connect with each other through social media and celebrations around the U.S.,” said Franck Duboeuf, co-proprietor of Les Vins Georges Duboeuf. “We’re planning Nouveau Expression parties around the nation and are delighted to be celebrating in Las Vegas.”
