Beaujolais Nouveau – a little piece of the french way of life

Today we had some wine tasting.

It is Beaujolais time right now. That is the latest wine from 2007 already available for consumption. Overall that is not really a very good wine. But this Beaujolais Nouveau or Primeur has a intersting tradition and every year the people that love wine go crazy for the Beaujolais. We had three wines and lots of Baguette, peperoni, Paté, cheese and so on.  The so called „savoir vivre“ is really something I can get used to 🙂

In the past three weeks I also had mostly wine, no beer. My first beer was on Sunday together with Christian at the 3 Brasseurs. Nice microbrew beer. Pretty good, but I love the wine. Especially the one from Pic Saint-Loup. Lots of little winery’s are here. One day i will buy some there.
