November 17, 2011 is Beaujolais Nouveau Day

Beaujolais Nouveau

Beaujolais Nouveau is a young red wine made from handpicked Gamay grapes grown in the Beaujolais region of France, where the beverage accounts for half of the region's production. While most red wines improve with age, Beaujolais Nouveau is all about freshness. Many producers, including regional giant Georges Duboeuf, race to deliver the first of the vintage to celebrations throughout France and the world.

Under French law, the wine may be released at 12:01 a.m. on the third Thursday of November, just weeks after the wine's grapes have been harvested. Fermentation is so short that the resulting wine exhibits fruity flavors and light tannins. Beaujolais Nouveau should be consumed right away (or within a year of being made), and is best served slightly cooled. Nearly half of the wine's 70-million-bottle production is exported abroad, mainly to Japan, Germany and the United States (where it is popularly enjoyed with Thanksgiving dinner).
Do not miss the opportunity to drink it !!!! 

When we were in LA, USA between 2000 and 2004, we saw so many time, wine shop to sell this one years later... you need to drink it the same year than it is produced.

Dear Sandra

The dessert was sensational!  Absolutely tasted delicious.  Thankyou so much!

The whole evening went exceptionally well, the rooms were filled with fresh flowers, the ambience truly magical as we have violinists and we also had a magnificent jazz singer too.

The girls wore frocks and dazzled!  It was a lovely opportunity to get dressed up.

We had a professional photographer there for the evening so once I receive the pics I will forward to you.
