Midnight Wednesday in the third week of November is when the Beaujolais Nouveau is released.  David says there used to be a race as to who could get it across the English Channel to London first.  Now, it is shipped ahead of time and released at 12:01 am.

In the US Beaujolais Nouveau is usually available for quite a few weeks.  Here, in Paris, it came and went quite quickly.  Beaujolais Nouveau is a light fruity wine and meant to be consumed not stored.  You can see, that’s what we did… consumed.
