This years wine comes from our award winning supplier Jean Loron who for the past few vintages has been awarded the top prize in the Beaujolais Nouveau competition organised in Beaujolais each year.

Fresh, fruity and light with intense aromas of small red fruits with just the right amount of sweetness and acidity.

Beaujolais Nouveau owes its easy drink style to the wine-making process, carbonic maceration, also called whole berry fermentation. This technique preserves the fresh, fruit quality of the wine, without extracting bitter tannins from the grape skins, the result a fun light red wine with bags of fruit traditional drunk slightly chilled.

At one past midnight on the third Thursday of each November, from little villages and towns like Romanèche-Thorins, over a million cases of Beaujolais Nouveau begin their journey through a sleeping France to Paris for immediate shipment to all parts of the world. Banners proclaim the good news: Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé! "The New Beaujolais has arrived!" One of the most frivolous and animated rituals in the wine world has begun.

By the time it is over, over 65 million bottles, nearly half of the region's total annual production, will be distributed and drunk around the world. It has become a worldwide race to be the first to serve to this new wine of the harvest. In doing so, it has been carried by motorcycle, balloon, truck, helicopter, Concorde jet, elephant, runners and rickshaws to get it to its final destination. It is amazing to realize that just weeks before this wine was a cluster of grapes in a growers vineyard. But by an expeditious harvest, a rapid fermentation, and a speedy bottling, all is ready at the midnight hour. By French law, Beaujolais Nouveau is to be released no earlier than the third Thursday of November.
