Given that I grew up and came of age in Britain, in the 1970s, I have known of ‘Beaujolais Nouveau‘ all my adult life. I, a lover of all forms of Beaujolais (Beaujolais Fleurie in particular), started celebrating ‘Beaujolais Nouveau Day‘, i.e., Third Thursday of November, in Britain, with gusto, around 1980. Soon I was hosting a ‘Beaujolais Nouveau Day’ party, in a London restaurant — when I was the Customer Support Manager for ITT Business Systems (UK).

I carried over the tradition to the U.S.

In the U.K. you were not restricted to ‘Beaujolais Nouveau’ just from ‘Georges Duboeuf’. You could get many different bottlings.

Not so in the U.S. — at least up here in New Hampshire. It is all from ‘Georges Duboeuf’. That is OK.

Over the years I have got used to getting my Nouveau from ‘Georges Duboeuf’ and doing my review.

I am sorry to see Georges passing. He had to have been a good and great man.

I salute him and as he would want me to, I say ‘Cheers’ holding up a glass of red.

I am hoping that the huge, new New Hampshire Liquor Store in Rochester will be carrying bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau 2019 tomorrow — Thursday, November 21, 2019. I plan to head out around noon. They are supposed to be one of the largest stores in NH, now, and as such I am hoping that they will be given an allocation. Otherwise I will have to go to Concord or Portsmouth. I would rather not. Fingers crossed. I do have a contingency plan as well.

I will, of course, keep you posted. Cheers.

France is 6-hours ahead of us, i.e., U.S. Eastern time. So, as I write this at 7:30pm, it is already 1:30am in France.

As such they are already well and truly into Thursday, November 21, 2019 — Beaujolais Nouveau day 2019.

I am all set. I even have contingency plans.

More to come. This is BIG. Very big. Special day in my year. SMILE.

Beaujolais Nouveau 2019 Will Be On Thursday, November 21.

Do NOT panic. It is NOT Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the next Thursday — November 28. It is late. Actually so is Beaujolais Nouveau day. That is because November 2019 starts on a Friday. So, the first Thursday is on November 7.

Beaujolais Nouveau day cannot fall on Thanksgiving. They are always a week apart — 3rd Thursday of November and the 4th.

So, just over a month away. I wanted to give you a heads up. I will prime you up the closer we get. OK? Promise.

Beaujolais Nouveau 2018 Day — Starts Shortly In France. Get READY.

For the first time in years I might NOT have to drive 45-minutes to Concord to get my Beaujolais Nouveau on the day.

We now have a huge and rather fancy New Hampshire Liquor Store in Rochester, NH — and that is but 20-minutes away. I called them yesterday. The first day I spoke to was NOT familiar with wine — let alone Beaujolais Nouveau. I guess she just sells vodka. But, the second lady I spoke to knew what I was talking about. She assured me that they will have some. But, I am going to check AGAIN.

Well, HAPPY Beaujolais Nouveau 2018.

Cheers.

Hope You Had A Great Beaujolais Nouveau 2017 Day. Cheers!

by Anura Guruge



Eventful day for I with my OBi110 and then my long-awaited Garmin Vivoactive 3 giving me grief.

But, the Beaujolais Nouveau was a solace.

No, I haven’t drunk a whole bottle yet, though I could do with drinking all 4. But, restraint! {Smile}

I hope you had a great day, better day than I — at least in terms of frigging electronics.

Why can’t life be simple like sipping Beaujolais Nouveau?

Cheers.
