Beaujolais nouveau is a red wine made from Gamay grapes produced in the Beaujolais region of France. It is the most popular vin de primeur, fermented for just a few weeks before being released for sale on the third Thursday of November.

Trade body InterBeaujolais has said the 2018 harvest in the region will “go down in history as a legendary vintage”. The ripening period was ideal with no adverse weather and warm, dry conditions, while the very wet winter and spring meant there was plenty of water for the vines to draw on thus avoiding any hydric stress. The final crop was in outstanding health and growers were able to take their time due to the weather to harvest at their leisure.
