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.
