Have you heard of Beaujolais Nouveau? It is the young, fermented Gamay Noir grape from the Beaujolais region of France. The French use a method called “Carbonic Maceration“, or whole grape fermentation, in a carbon dioxide rich environment, that causes the wine to be very fruity and low in tannins. The wine is ready to drink young, and not meant to be kept in the cellar for long-term aging. Left Bank Restaurant in the West End downtown is celebrating Beaujolais Nouveau with a special dinner, serving Maison Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais Nouveau. Details below.
Left Bank Restaurant invites you to their annual Beaujolais Nouveau event on Thursday, November 20. Expect a deliciously paired three-course menu for only $65 per person including the Beaujolais. Make reservations today as this event will sell out 604-687-1418.
