All across the world today, corks will be popping to celebrate the arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau in keeping with the tradition inaugurated by George Duboeuf in 1967.
While it is still a fair way off from recovering its position as perhaps the most important date in the wine diary, Beaujolais Nouveau day is definitely making a comeback.
The day is marked in France with fireworks, music and festivals. Under French law, the wine is released at 12:01 a.m. on the third Thursday in November just weeks after the wine's grapes have been harvested. Perhaps no other appellation is so closely associated with one producer as Beaujolais Nouveau is with Georges Dubeouf.
Once again this year he has managed to make a wine that is brimming with juicy raspberry/cherry fruit, soft and so very easy to drink.
As of today Georges Dubeouf Beaujolais Nouveau 2015 is available to purchase in your local O’Briens store at the reduced price of €11.99.
These are sure to sell out quickly, so don’t miss out!
