Only 2 days before Beaujolais Nouveau 2015!
But do you know the real story and the characteristics of the famous Beaujolais Nouveau?
- Since 1951, Beaujolais Nouveau has a special authorization to be released for sale before December 15 of the year of harvest, and since 1986, we can finally savor it every third Thursday of November at 0:00.
- Beaujolais Nouveau is 100% made of Gamay Noir à jus blanc, using a whole berry fermentation method, very typical from Beaujolais wine region. Beaujolais Nouveau wine is fruity, very low in tannins with a purple-pink colour.
- Finally only two appellations can produce Beaujolais Nouveau: Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages, over 11 000 hectares of vines.
