Celebrated in France since 70 years, the Beaujolais Nouveau has become, over time, an unmissable event at the beginning of Winter. We found the 6 coolest addresses to celebrate in the capital.
What would be November without his Beaujolais Nouveau ? The Beaujolais Nouveau was created in the early 1950s. It is a wine from the Beaujolais appellation, made using a particular winemaking technique that gives it the characteristic fruity aromas of the gamay grape variety. This is a good wine to drink young. It is marketed every year from the third Thursday in November, only a few months after the harvest (hence the term « new »).
