A Beaujolais Feast at Saint Jacques French Cuisine on the day that celebrates another successful harvest and the arrival of the ‘new wine’ (vin nouveau) in the Beaujolais region🍷

Discover Beaujolais
#beaujolaisnouveau

Every year on the third Thursday of the month people celebrate the arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau. When the clock strikes midnight, the bottles are opened and people stop to join what can only be described as a wine party! Beaujolais Nouveau originates from the Beaujolais region of France near Lyon.

It comes from the Gamay grape, which gives it its fruity aroma and bright red colour. As a vin primeur – a wine sold in the same year that it was harvested – Beaujolais Nouveau is unique in the sense that it is very young. It does not have to age for a long time in the cellar like other wines and it is released for sale not long after fermentation (traditionally it could have even still been in the final stages of fermentation as it was being transported to the bars).

The official recognition of this wine came after the war in 1951 where regulations on the ageing of wine were revoked and a date was set for the official release of the Beaujolais Nouveau.

Our Gem Wines

Time

We dedicate time to sourcing GEM wines abroad, looking for handcrafted wines
and tasting with artisan winemakers, from well-known regions and appellations
as well as less marketed or untapped ones.

Love & Passion

Our GEM wines are terroir-driven, made with love and passion from sustainably grown grapes.
Most often, the estate has been in the family for several generations, combining the best of
 tradition and forward-thinking.

Unique personality

Our winemakers are opting for minimal intervention, both in the vineyards and in the cellar,
in order to enhance wine’s aromatic expression and better reflect its unique personality,
vintage after vintage.

IT TAKES TIME, LOVE & PASSION TO CRAFT WINES WITH A UNIQUE PERSONNALITY
