Beaujolais Nouveau has arrived once again! Made from Gamay grapes in the Beaujolais region, it is only fermented for about 6 weeks.
Released at 12:01 on the third Thursday of November, it’s apparently quite the business that goes about transporting the bottles around the world.
While I did not attend any celebrations this year (as the Metro doesn’t care about Beaujolais day…) I sampled it on the actual Thursday, daytime, and Metro supported. 🙂
My good friend Martin came for a visit this weekend, and we had a great time tasting as many different labels as we could! 🙂 We called it, “Beaujolais Weekend.” Each day was dedicated to one of our birthdays, since we will not be able to celebrate on the actual days.
Martin, supporting Beaujolais and Movember!
With dinner at Le Petit Château d’Eau.
Sold from the Boulanger Arnaud Delmontel, along with a tiny loaf of bread made with the wine! (Yes, it was purple.)
From a shop in Montparnasse!
Purchased in Montmartre and enjoyed on the steps of Sacre Coeur. 🙂
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!
Late entry. 😉
Yes, another. I’m drinking the cheap stuff until it’s unavailable! 🙂
Homecoming wine with Bryan!! 🙂
Brought by Megan to Galena! 🙂 4 new labels!
