C’est (almost) arrivée: Beaujolais Nouveau to hit Paris on Thursday, November 18

The annual festival of barely-fermented wine is almost upon us, so we’ve rounded up a few ideas to help you get your headache on.

Les Caves Augé

11am-7pm

Free dégustation of Vins Nouveaux direct from the barrel, “ni filtré, ni collé, ni sulfité…” Winemakers to include Mas de l’Anglore, Chassorney, Morentin, Foillard, Foulards Rouges.

Les Caves Augé – 116 boulevard Haussmann, 75008

Spring Boutique + Le Garde Robe

6pm-11pm

The wine bar and the wine shop have teamed up to throw what will undoubtedly be the best Beaujolais party in town. According to Spring, winemaker Jean-Claude Lapalu will be “coming from the Beaujolais with a barrel of zero sulfite gamay, a funnel, 25 cases of empty bottles, and a corking machine. We’ll have the soup and the saucisson.” Our advice: get there early if you want a taste of soup, buy your own bottle so that you don’t wait in line at the bar, and be ready to dance in the street between the two locations.
