Nice, France Beaujolais Nouveau


http://tourvideos.com/ We happened to be in Nice, France on a very special day -- it's the day that Beaujolais Nouveau is released to the world. It happens once a year on the third Thursday of November, and they are very generous, the wine stores give away free samples! How can you beat that, free wine in the south of France on the day of Beaujolais Nouveau. We show you several wine tastings and tell you all about it. But this is one of those situations, you've got to be here, or tasting along at home, rather than just watching a video. But frankly, between you and me, it's not the best wine of France. It's kind of raw, and can be too fruity. You can get much better Bordeaux wines that are aged for five or 10 years, but this tasting is a fun thing -- it's an event because the wine shops celebrate with the release of Beaujolais Nouveau with free tastings, so people come down to line up on the sidewalk and gather around. France is a wine country. There's no question France produces the best wine in the world! Sorry Napa. And there's something special about this event, it becomes a ritual, in the case of the Beaujolais Nouveau it's an annual event on the third Thursday of November every year -- it's the official release of Beaujolais Nouveau which is a fresh young wine. It is in the bottle eight weeks after it's been harvested so it's very fresh and very young and it's kind of a pink purple color. Yummmm!
