This Is Nouveau Day
...Thomas Matthews, Wine Spectator
An Early Nouveau—The water subsided, the vines were planted,
the first harvest was held five years later in the fall,
and the wine was drunk about January. The vintner was Noah.
Since French law forbids the sale of Beaujolais Nouveau until the third Thursday of November, why is it that you can find your Duboeuf in the U.S.A. the same day? Answer: The law has been altered to permit shipping six days before that Thursday.
Best of all, you can enjoy your first 1998 Duboeuf for less than $10.
In Beaujolais, the vintners recommended to me quiche, grilled fish, roast chicken, cold cuts, Oriental and Mexican cuisine, and mild cheeses such as Brie and Camembert. Those airy fruit flavors are mightly flexible, and better if you give the bottle 30 to 60 minutes in the frig before serving.
Why is the area called Beaujolais, when there's no river, mountain, etc. by that name? Answer: The area is named after the village founded in the region a thousand years ago, Beaujeu.
Note: For more about Duboeuf, see the Sept. 25, 1998 WineDay titled, " Duboeuf Beaujolais."
