Celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau 2015 on Thursday, November 19 starting at 5:30pm

For many decades, just past midnight on the third Thursday in each November, little villages all over the Beaujolais region in eastern France have come to life, hustling to get their many cases of Beaujolais Nouveau to Paris for the annual celebration of the young wine.

Seattleites can join in on the celebration at Bastille Café & Bar where popping bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau has become an annual tradition since the Ballard Avenue restaurant opened in 2009. Bastille will be pouring 2015 Beaujolais Nouveau on Thursday, November 19 starting at 5:30pm for $3/taste, $6/glass, and $20/carafe.

Wine director James Lechner and his team have selected outstanding Beaujolais Nouveau producers to showcase the vibrancy of the Gamay grape. They’ve also selected additional wines from the Beaujolais region—older wines that provide an interesting contrast and demonstrate the variety of styles the region produces. Additional Beaujolais wines from the Gang of Four, a group of outstanding natural wine producers in Beaujolais, will be available by the taste, glass and bottle. Natural winemaking is an Old World technique of reducing winemaker intervention in the winery. The process results in especially vibrant, fresh exemplars of the Gamay grape.

Bastille will also showcase wines from producers of Cru Beaujolais, which come from the ten best villages of the area, and are well structured and full of minerality. Next to the light, fruity and young Beaujolais Nouveau these wines display the depth this southern French appellation is capable of. The Bastille team will be pouring 2.5oz tastes, 5oz glasses, 500ml carafes, and bottles from Jean Foillard, Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thevenet, Domaine Diochon, Domaine Vissoux, Terres Dorée, Desvignes, Dupeuble and more.This broad selection will give guests a chance to compare villages, vineyards, vintners, and vintages.

Chef Jason Stoneburner has put together an accompanying small plates menu including Stuffed Gougères with chanterelle mushrooms and aged Comté cheese, Steak Tartare with truffle chips, and Butternut squash and leek croustillant. These and additional Beaujolais Nouveau small plates will be available for $9 all evening.
