A Beaujolais in Spring

It’s Beaujolais Nouveau day on Thursday 18th, and although this generally means over-priced wines drunk half-heartedly whilst discussing whether this year’s cru tastes more like pear drops, bananas or petrol, it does seem like there will be a genuinely interesting event this time around.

The Rue de l’Arbre Sec is a grey and rather depressing back street, which is entirely suitable for a road that got its name from the gallows that used to stand here, but it does have the advantage of providing a home to both the new Spring restaurant and a wine retailer called Le Garde Robe. The two will be combining their skills this Thursday, with Le Garde Robe selling wine direct from the barrel, and the Spring team providing onion soup and saucisson. It should be fun!

Adam, I will not be in Paris for this event but we always enjoy Beaujolais Nouveau with a toast to the French and French wine chez nous... We have it marked on the calendar and enjoy our vicarious experience. In two weeks I can check out Spring for myself!

Thanks for the reminder, Adam! i nearly almost forgot! The New Beaujolais is here, hooray! (Any excuse to have a party to drink wine is OK In my book.)
