It’s the holiday season, alright. But here’s a day worth celebrating that you may not be aware of: November 15th. That’s Beaujolais Nouveau Day, highly anticipated by French wine lovers across the world. On the third Thursday of every November in Beaujolais, wineries release the very first bottles of the new harvest. These young, easy-drinking expressions of Gamay are popped and enjoyed in restaurants and gatherings all over France.
But who says France gets to have all the fun?! On this Thursday, November 15th at Death & Taxes , we’re throwing a little Beaujolais party of our own, with three Beaujolais Nouveau offerings available by the glass, plus features from the kitchen inspired by Burgundy.
The menu? Think embered duck liver mousse, steak frites, and a wood-fire influenced play on coq au vin.
And here are the Beaujolais offerings we’ll be pouring by the glass:
- Domaine Foretal Beaujolais Nouveau 2018
- Laurence et Remi Dufaitre Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau 2018
- Jean-Paul Brun Vieilles Vignes Beaujolais Nouveau 2018 (out of 3-liter)
Want to join? Make a reservation here. There’s no prefixe or ticket, just an opportunity to dine with us and be the first to taste the 2018 vintage of Beaujolais.
