Wine time

Living France - - What's New -

In the world of wine, Novem­ber means one thing only – it’s time to cel­e­brate the lat­est vin­tage of Beau­jo­lais

Nou­veau! At one minute past mid­night on 16 Novem­ber (it’s al­ways held on the third Thurs­day of the month), the lat­est Beau­jo­lais Nou­veau is re­leased and cel­e­bra­tions are held across France to taste the six-to-eight-weekold wine. The lit­tle town of Beau­jeu in Rhône, af­ter which the wine is named, is a fit­ting place to cel­e­brate. The fes­tiv­i­ties last for five days and in­clude a torch­lit pro­ces­sion, themed din­ners, mu­sic con­certs, fire­works and, of course, wine tast­ings. The light fruity wine is meant to be drunk young, which is maybe partly the rea­son why the first night is ded­i­cated to drink­ing it! beau­jo­lais­nou­veau­
