Beaujolais Nouveau 2007

Thursday, November 15, 2007 at 6:30pm

Wine lovers wait with anticipation every year for the third Thursday in November, when the latest vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau becomes available. This year, our annual Beaujolais Nouveau Fête will take place in Tinker Auditorium and the FIAF Gallery. Wine stations will be set up throughout the rooms, allowing you to sample wines from different companies while enjoying accordion music from Nicole Renaud. Pâtés and breads will be served, and there will be a raffle to win special prizes.

Wines courtesy of Joseph Drouhin, imported and distributed by Dreyfus Ashby; Georges Duboeuf, imported and distributed by W.J. Deutsch & Sons Ltd.; and Labouré-Roi, imported and distributed by Palm Bay Imports.

Leaders of the NY Chapter of Les Compagnons des Beaujolais: Jacques Capsouto, President; Jacques Rameckers, Grand Tabellion; Bill Deutsch, Chairman & CEO of W.J. Deutsch & Sons Ltd and Grand Argentier will induct Pascale Richard, Editor-in-Chief of France-Amerique; Adam Gopnik, New Yorker contributor and author; and Rudolph Chelminski, author, into “The Brotherhood of the Beaujolais."

Rudolph Chelminski will sign copies of his book, I'll Drink to That: Beaujolais Nouveau and the French Peasant Who Made it the World's Most Popular Wine [Gotham Books, Oct 2007] and discuss the Beaujolais Nouveau phenomenon.
