Beaujolais Nouveau Day at Belle Epoque

It is the law…French law. Corks will pop, snails will race, music will sound and French cuisine will be plentiful when Brisbane’s Belle Epoque French Bistro at Emporium stages a celebration for Beaujolais Nouveau Day. 

Each year the new Beaujolais is ceremoniously released on the third Thursday of November, beginning one of the most frivolous and animated rituals in the wine world.

Thanks to fine tuned logistical precision planning, Brisbane’s Belle Epoque French Bistro has 11 cases (132 bottles) of Beaujolais Nouveau winging their way from Paris at exactly one minute past midnight on 19 November to arrive less than 33 hours later in time for the venue’s own Beaujolais Nouveau uncorking celebrations - "Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrive!".

The party on November 20 from will feature free flowing Beaujolais Nouveau available from multiple bars plus food stations dishing up Black Pearl cheese and charcuterie, freshly shucked oysters and other seafood along with a patisserie station of mignardies, pastries, macaroons and live crepe flambée.
