A Toast to Beaujolais Nouveau!

The 2017 release of Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau is the 35th in America, which is quite impressive for a European wine.  This producer, for the most part, put this wine on the map by massively promoting it decades ago.  It is now on the radar of most every wine retailer in the United States.  Americans drink over one million bottles of this young and festive wine each year.

The story behind the origins of Beaujolais Nouveau begins in France in the early 1800s.  Beaujolais grape-growers would celebrate each year’s harvest by drinking some of the young wine that was just made.  The wine was then meant only for local consumption.  It wasn’t until World World II, after the Beaujolais AOC was established, that the wine could officially be sold and distributed on December 15th of each year.  In 1951, the release date of the wine was moved forward to November 15th, and then finally in 1985, the current law was amended to release the wine on the third Thursday of November each year, just in time for a pre-Thanksgiving weekend of sales in the United States.  It is customary to export and distribute the wine prior to this day so that retailers can have the wine available for purchase by the start of the official business day.
