Â The thirdÂ Thursday of NovemberÂ is theÂ time the wine called Beaujolais Nouveau is released. It is a way to taste what wine will taste like in the coming year, from what I understand. It is also an excuse for people to fight their way through crowded bars for a taste of the wine the minute it is allowed to be served and get roaring drunk. I first experienced the wine when I lived in Austin, Texas. It was a fun party and the wine was rather fruity and light. It isn’t a great wine but has become, due to really good hype, the thing to do if you like wine.
Â If you have had a great experience celebrating Beaujolais Nouveau, go to Blue Vicar at www.bluevicar.com and write about it, or just go and read about it when other people post. She has some interesting postings as well on Halloween in France.
