France’s love/hate relationship with Beaujolais nouveau!


On the third Thursday of November, France celebrates the arrival of a Beaujolais nouveau. It's France's most famous "vin primeur" (young wine) and hails from the beautiful and highly protected Beaujolais wine producing region. Though it’s a favorite in France's jam-packed cultural calendar, the tradition is quite recent. Critics say it’s nothing more a marketing operation that produces undrinkable wine in large quantities. But Beaujolais nouveau has diehard fans in France and abroad.
