“Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrivé!” Translation: “The new Beaujolais has arrived!”
Each year on the third Thursday of November, a wine style by the name of Beaujolais Nouveau arrives in wine bars worldwide. This marks Beaujolais Nouveau Day and the celebration of the wine and its region.
Garçon Paris Steakhouse will be the perfect spot to celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau Day and the fun, frivolous drop designed to be shared with friends. With over 100 official celebrations for Beaujolais Nouveau Day in France, and over 65 million bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau consumed worldwide, it’s a day and wine not to be missed.
Made from Gamay grapes, Beaujolais Nouveau is a fresh and fruity red wine, with flavours of deliciously ripe summer berries and a bright raspberry colour, and although in the northern hemisphere the arrival of Beaujolais signals the beginning of the winter holiday season, it’s really much more suited to our Southern summertime, kick starting the warm weather and party season.
The easy to drink drop is the result of a quick fermentation process, with bottling taking place 6-8 weeks after harvest. With no advantage to aging it, Beaujolais Nouveau is a wine to be quaffed not sipped and is best served slightly chilled and in the presence of friends.
To celebrate Garçon will be serving Beaujolais Nouveau fresh off the plane from France for $10 a glass, between lunch Thursday 15th November to happy hour Friday 16th November.
