Beaujolais nouveau is a red wine made from Gamay grapes produced in the Beaujolais region of France with fresh, fruity flavors. They are also very low in tannins. The fermentation process takes only a few weeks and the grapes are bottled only 6-8 weeks after harvest.
The grapes must come from the Beaujolais region. By law, all grapes in the region must be harvested by hand. Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau comes from the ~ 30 non-cru villages in the region.
The wine is made using carbonic maceration, whole berry anaerobic fermentation which emphasizes fruit flavors without extracting bitter tannins from the grape skins. Grapes are loaded into a large (think 20,000 gallon) sealed container that is filled with carbon dioxide. Grapes that are gently crushed at the bottom of the container by the weight of the grapes start to ferment, emitting more CO2. All this carbon dioxide causes fermentation to take place inside the uncrushed grapes (without access to oxygen, hence "anaerobic fermentation"). The resulting wine is fresh, fruity, and very low in tannins.
The wine is recommended to be slightly chilled to 13°C (55°F).
Beaujolais nouveau makes for a wonderful Thanksgiving wine.
