Beaujolais Nouveau Est Arrive! by (PB)

Beaujolais Nouveau is here! Made from the Gamay grape, Nouveau is fermented for just a few weeks and then annually and always, released on the third Thursday of November. In Beaujolais, it is time of great fan fare and celebration.

So on your way home, stop by your local wine place and grab a bottle or two of Nouveau. It is simple wine that is fruity and--in good years--just plain delicious and guzzle worthy! It should cost you anywhere from $9-$14 depending on whether it is "Beaujolais Nouveau" or Beaujolais Cru Nouveau. But either way, it's fun and juicy so be sure to raise a glass on this special wine day around the world!

I picked up a bottle in Dublin on Monday. Apparently, there's quite a fuss if it's sold before a certain date, though.

Fuss? I'll say; great pains are taken to insure a world wide release date of the third Thursday. You scored!!! Raise a glass!
