Beaujolais [BOE-zjoh-lay] Nouveau is always released the third Thursday of November, regardless of the start of the harvest. It is a purple-pink youthful wine, bottled only 6-8 weeks after harvest. The Gamay grapes used in beaujolais have to be harvested by hand.
The method of production means that there is very little tannin, and the wine flavors are often fruity and lively. It is best served slightly chilled. Unlike most wines, Beaujolais Nouveau is intended for immediate consumption and not for keeping.
