November holds the best Thursdays of the year, right? No other calendar month has a Thursday worthy of celebration, let alone two! Yes, there’s the fourth Thursday, when we gather with family and friends to eat stuffing, get stuffed, and give thanks for it. But the Thursday we get most excited about here at KLWM is the Thursday before . . . that jubilant third Thursday when, at one minute after midnight, the floodgates in Beaujolais open to release their new bottlings of just-harvested, freshly fermented Gamay into the eagerly awaiting hands (and mouths) of the masses. The timing is perfect, because no bird-filled feast tastes complete without a juicy Nouveau to wash it down. How did one holiday exist without the other for over a hundred years? You can expect the 2019 Nouveau from Ghislaine Dupeuble to be made in the domaine’s usual, stereotype-shattering style—estate-grown, hand-harvested, naturally fermented, and unfiltered. This is Nouveau worth celebrating.
