2017—Beaujolais Nouveau Day
On a whim Thursday evening while shopping at Whole Foods, I bought a bottle of 2017 Beaujolais Nouveau. Seeing it brought back fond memories of my trip to France three years ago with my friend Charleen when we traveled by river boat and train tasting wines throughout France. The release of the year’s Beaujolais Nouveau is a big deal in France and as I recall, we missed it by a couple of days there, although we did some tasting of it. I don’t think a day or two could possibly make a difference with this very young, very delicious wine. But, it turned out that Thursday, November 16, 2017, was Beaujolais Nouveau Day this year. What serendipity! I had no idea when I bought the wine and neither did I realize that Beaujolais Nouveau is shipped to the US so that we can participate in Beaujolais Nouveau Day with the French. By the way, it paired well with my dinner of leftover grilled chicken tenders and cauliflower rice.
alut to Beaujolais Nouveau!
