The Beaujolais Nouveau has Arrived!

Posted on Thursday, 21 November 2013
It’s a tradition which has been going on for decades and it still brews excitement among bar, café, bistro and restaurant owners up and down France and, of course, all along the Riviera! Beaujolais Nouveau is one of the rare French wines which holds the tradition of being consume very soon after bottling.

While not to everyone’s tastes, the wine is young and fruity with a lighter red colour than other wines from the same region (Beaujolais is just north of Lyon). But as with many of France’s oldest traditions, love it or not, everyone seems to get involved. If you’re travelling to the Riviera over on the 3rd Thursday in November you can expect to see fireworks, street parties and impromptu gatherings outside bars and wine shops throughout the region. Restaurants often offer special accompanying menus and wine shops or ‘caves à vin’ often organise entertainment to mark the occasion.

If you’re in Nice for the big day, be sure to make your way to Rue de la Préfecture, as its legendary Cave and the nearby bohemian-style bar ‘Distilleries Idéales’ become the centre of the action.
