It’s Beaujolais Nouveau time!

with No Comments

November has arrived, and that means it’s Beaujolais Nouveau month!

For those who don’t know about this unique wine event, the Beaujolais Nouveau celebrates the end of the harvest and is a race to get the new vintage on to the market as fast as possible.

The unique wine, always released in the third week of November, is made of Gamay grapes, and fermented for just a few weeks before being harvested by hand in the Beaujolais region of France.

Georges DuBoeuf produces the most well known variety of Beaujolais Nouveau, and DuBoeuf himself is often recognised as the man responsible for the popularisation of the annual Beaujolais Nouveau.

To celebrate, we’re holding a five course Georges DuBoeuf Beaujolais Nouveau dinner on Thursday, November 21 with guest chef Russell Armstrong.

Beginning at 7pm, guests will enjoy a menu of Russell Armstrong’s favourite dishes such as pressed quail and foie gras tartine, slow braised milk fed veal “Milanese”, and poached sensation pear with an almond tart.

Of course, Georges DuBouef Beaujolais Nouveau accompanies all these dishes.

We are the only venue putting on a Beaujolais Nouveau celebration, so don’t miss out on this unique and quintessentially French opportunity!

The dinner, with all wine included, is $125 per person. Book in now on (07) 3161 1858, or email bookings@lutece.com.au
