Over the past 40 years, opening the Beaujolais Nouveau has become a not-to-be-missed celebration in many countries.
Beaujolais Nouveau belongs to a category of wines called vins primeurs, meaning any wine sold in the same year it was harvested, shortly after completing fermentation. There are no fewer than 55 appellations in France that permit the production of vin primeur.
