Ready, Set, Go ...The Beaujolais Nouveau est Arrive!

On the third Thursday of November the Beaujolais Nouveau will be released at the one minute past  midnight.   Experts believe this year's production is one of the best though the harvest was smaller than in previous years. Made of Gamay grape, Beaujolais is produced in the region of the same name located between Lyon and Burgundy.

The occasion of the Beaujolais' release is an event eagerly awaited in France and around the world and an occasion to party.  It is a young wine that is  bottled just 6-8 weeks after harvest thus its fruitiness freshness.   It pairs well with meat, poultry, fish and seafood and is a good accompaniment to your Thanksgiving feast.  This year marks the 30th year of celebrating the arrival of  Beaujolais Nouveau in the USA.   To honor this anniversary, George Duboeuf the major producer of Beaujolais Nouveau  has invited techno illusionist/magician Marco Tempest to develop a smartphone app thru which wine lovers can celebrate the Magic of Beaujolais Nouveau.
