Escargot, canard, and Beaujolais Nouveau. Isn’t this tempting?
Le Parisien presents Beaujolais Nouveau on November 21. Beaujolais Nouveau Day is marked on the third Thursday of November with great festivities in France. Under French law, the wine is released at 12:01am, just weeks after the wine grapes have been harvested. Parties are held throughout the country and around the globe to celebrate this first wine of the season.
Le Parisien is celebrating this grand French tradition on Thursday, November 21 with a three-course family-style dinner, paired with Georges DuBoeuf Beaujolais Nouveau. With a very short maceration of 3 to 5 days, followed by a traditional alcoholic fermentation and pressing, Georges DuBoeuf Beaujolais Nouveau is made with Gamay grapes, and is extremely low in tannin with fruity aromas and a bright transparent red hue.
Guests will celebrate the release by gathering around communal tables to share in a decadent meal, while sipping on fresh unadulterated wine. This joyous occasion will be accompanied by a live performance from local French vocalist, Pepper Bayard.
Dinner is priced at $65 inclusive of tax, gratuity and wine pairing.
Of course guests can always enjoy Le Parisien’s regular menu and relax with a glass of Beaujolais Nouveau.
