Beaujolais Nouveau

Beaujolais Nouveau - It’s that time of year again as Beaujolais Nouveau producers are getting ready to uncork this year's crop of France's most famous young wine. Beaujolais, a region 55 kilometers (34 miles) north of Lyon, has spent decades marketing its wines globally. It now exports to more than 110 countries. The wine has been released on the third Thursday in November, at 12.01am, since 1985, receiving an enthusiastic reception at street parties across the country. However this year celebrations will be marred by the recently introduced US tariffs, Brexit uncertainty and a drop-in sale to the Hong Kong market amid unrest in the Asian city. Orders had already been placed, for this year's Beaujolais Nouveau by the time the tariffs took effect.
