So every November — at one past midnight on the third Thursday of the month — over a million cases of Beaujolais Nouveau are shipped throughout the world.
It has become a marketing phenomena — thanks mainly to Georges DuBoeuf because he made a party out of it.
But basically, its a super young wine — harvested in September each year and bottle and shipped by the middle of November — every year.
Sure you can go to Beaujolais Nouveau parties — and you should. But whether you should by the wine is up for debate.
So listen below to my other suggestions. Happy Beaujolais Whatever Day!
And you know I would love to hear your thoughts on this, the wines you are drinking or anything else…so send a quick note! Thanks!
