Beaujolais Nouveau

Practice French with benefits!

    Thursday, November 22nd at 6:00 PM

Come and taste the Beaujolais Nouveau, the first French wine of the year, and have some cheese to go along!

Beaujolais nouveau
(French pronunciation: [bo.ʒɔ.lɛ nu.vo]) is a red wine made from Gamay grapes produced in the Beaujolais region of France. It is the most popular vin de primeur, fermented for just a few weeks before being released for sale on the third Thursday of November (oui, we organize it on the 4th Thursday so the wine can travel across to Calgary). The method of production means that there is very little tannin, and the wine can be dominated by such fruity ester flavours as banana, grape, strawberry, fig and pear drop.

It will be a great occasion for you to practice French, meet friendly people, test a sample of French gastronomy and have fun!
