November 15, 2018, Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!

Le Beaujolais est arrivé! It’s November 15, the third Thursday in November and Beaujolais Nouveau, the first wine of the harvest makes it’s entrance onto the market. I always run right out and buy a bottle at my local liquor store. They had one brand – George Duboeuf. The marvelous company that basically owns the Beaujolais company in the U.S.  All 96 Beaujolais villages are allowed to produce Nouveau. Nouveau made with the Gamay grape, a great pairing at Thanksgiving by the way, must be hand harvested and undergo semi-carbonic maceration. It has aromas of bright red fruits and thin tannins. I even like the slightly candied flavors. It’s a happy wine and an antidote to this snowy Thursday evening. At under $15, the price can’t be beat.  Here’s a wonderful article by Michele Williams in about the wine. Salut!!
