What’s all the fuss about the Beaujolais Nouveau?

As we deem the Melbourne Cup as the ‘race that stops Australia’, the Beaujolais Nouveau is the wine that stops France.

By law, the Beaujolais Nouveau is released only at the stroke of midnight on the third Thursday of November. Racing to see whose Beaujolais Nouveau is the first to get into the hands of customers, vintners employ fun ways of transport. From trucks to specially designed hot air balloons, it’s an event filled with fun and sport. There is much fanfare across the country celebrating the first wine of the French harvest.

The Beaujolais Nouveau is a young wine at only 6 weeks old, to be enjoyed at its current vintage.  It’s grown from the Gamay grape with  fruity, exuberant and light-bodied taste, making it extremely easy to drink. Some say that it tastes like bananas as it contains the famous “Goût de banane” which comes from the yeast that is used to make the wine. We know that it goes superbly with a delicious crêpe or galette!

Celebrate the first harvest with us!

We would like to invite you to join in this annual momentous celebration at Four Frogs! Enjoy a glass of this beautiful chilled wine at $10, or share a bottle with your loved ones for $40. The much anticipated Beaujolais Nouveau arrives at our crêperies on the 15 November, and is available until the 28 November. Make it an extra special day to share with your friends by making a group booking with our delicious new group menus. Santé!
