The times they are a-changin’ in the Beaujolais: with a surge of renewed energy, thanks to a talented batch of vignerons following in the footsteps of pioneers like Jules Chauvet and Marcel Lapierre, the region has regained its rightful place on the map as the source of what are undoubtedly among France’s most irresistible reds. Long gone are the days of thin, insipid, overly processed juice from evil co-ops; today’s Beaujolais is the product of conscientious farming and natural winemaking by passionate individuals dedicated to showing off the charms of their beloved region. Made in this way, Beaujolais Nouveau becomes a wine of explosive deliciousness. Just think—over the course of a mere two months, these grapes went from idling bunches hanging from the vine to a juicy elixir that will inspire song, dance, and overall merriment throughout an entire nation, not to mention us Nouveau disciples across the Atlantic.
WANT SOME NOUVEAU?
The wine arrives in our shop on Thursday, November 16, and we’ll sell it by the bottle and the case. If you’re interested in securing some, give us a call anytime this month and we’ll have it ready to be picked up or shipped on the 16th. Also, our Nouveau is sold in many states. Visit kermitlynch.com/nouveau for a list of retailers around the nation who will carry the wine starting Thursday, November 16.
Join us on Saturday, November 18, for our first Beaujolais Nouveau party since 2012, and imbibe a goblet or three of the freshly harvested, freshly fermented, wholly unfiltered Gamay from Domaine Dupeuble! As with past parties, we’ll put up tents in our parking lot and feature live music, hot plates cooked to order, and—of course—an assortment of wines served by the glass for your quaffing pleasure. See you there!
