July 14th is the national holiday of France. On that day in 1789, enraged Parisians stormed the famous Bastille prison in protest of the merciful conditions in which the people lived and the abuse of power of the monarchy. This rebellion was the beginning of the French Revolution and democracy and the beginning of the end of royal tyranny.
Everywhere you see the French flag flying and all day long freedom is celebrated with lots of food and even more wine. “La Feu d´Artifice”, or fireworks, is indispensable on this day and many a Frenchman will dance until the sun comes up. A good reason for a petit fête at Bistrot Neuf! More info will follow…

Traditionally, the Beaujolais Nouveau is presented on the third Thursday in November. This is wine of the first pressing, with lots of fruit, often a little scanty at the first sip, but in the aftertaste the quality of that year and the house can be recognized.
The Beaujolais is made from the grape “Gamay Noir”. More than 90% of all Beaujolais wines are made with the so-called carbonic acid fermentation (maceration carbonique). Because there is no oxygen involved, the wine retains its fruitiness.
The Beaujolais Nouveau is originated in the sixties, starting as a smart marketing strategy in the wine world. To this day it is a big party, every year around the world. In the night after the release of the wine, numerous trucks and cars leave loud honking from the cellars in the Beaujolais to present the wine on time. In the morning, dozens of cargo planes leave to Japan, Canada and the USA to transfer the Beaujolais madness.
Are you curious about the Beaujolais Nouveau this year? Then come to Bistrot Neuf on Wednesday November 14th. At exactly 9:09 pm we present to you the new Beaujolais, with a delicious matching snack.
