Just how we need a cup of coffee every now and again to get us going and start the day, a glass of wine is just as appreciated to wind down and end a night. Who doesn't enjoy a glass of wine? It for sure works its magic most especially after a long day! And while we all have our go-tos, finding a new wine to sip on never gets old, which is why I'm pretty excited to share with you guys a current favorite of mine: Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2016

Here's a little cool background, it's said that Beaujolais Nouveau can be described as "the first taste of a new vintage , the first wine of the harvest, and an indicator for the quality of that year's vintage". Back then, the wine harvested  in the Beaujolais region was only made for local consumption until about 1951 when the French government formally gave what's now known as Beaujolais Nouveau, a release date set on the third Thursday of November. The first bottles entered the U.S. in November of 1983, which is why now as an annual tradition, the wine is always released on the third Thursday of November, just in time to start the holiday season. 

Beaujolais Nouveau is bottled only 6-8 weeks after harvest and produced using the carbonic maceration technique which produces it's signature light-bodied vibrant red, fresh fruity (and festive!) taste (for you white wine lovers, I'd recommend their tasty Macon-Villages chardonnay). 

As for my bottle of Beaujolais-Villages, it's fruity and flavorful, just how I like it! It's the type of wine that pretty much goes well with anything from grilled fish to burgers and pizza. And I'd say it's perfect for a relaxing night-in, or a dinner with the family. Oh, and it is made for immediate drinking, so if you do find yourself a bottle, serve it chilled, bottoms up, and thank me later! ;)
