Beaujolais Nouveau is the world's most popular vin de primeur. A red wine, made from Gamay grapes born in the region south of Burgundy, it is produced and bottled only a few weeks after harvest and is meant to be consumed immediately - not aged, like many other varieties of wine. Released only once a year, it is a requirement under French law that this light and fruity wine not be distributed until 12:01am on the third Thursday of November each year. In France, a race to carry the first bottle of Beaujolais nouveau to Paris has become a national event, with cafés and bars across the city announcing when "Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrivé!"Alliance Française is importing this exclusive wine direct from France so the community in-and-around Brisbane can join in this celebration.
