"Because Beaujolais Nouveau is released annually on the third Thursday of November - exactly one week before Thanksgiving - the two have become as inextricably linked as Champagne and New Year's Eve."
*Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg, Washington Post, and: authors, The Flavor Bible and What to Drink with What You Eat
"The third Thursday in November celebrates the arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau from France. This vivacious fruity red wine is a favorite of both wine aficionados and style setters. Versatile with many popular dishes, Beaujolais Nouveau is the ideal accompaniment for holiday entertaining."
