A 2017 Beaujolais Nouveau Celebration With Kysela Pere et Fils Imports Friday, November 17, 2017 at 6:30 pm.  As we co-host our 26th annual Beaujolais Nouveau Celebration with Kysela Pere et Fils of Winchester, Virginia. Beaujolais Nouveau is always released the third Thursday of November, regardless of the start of the harvest. Beaujolais Nouveau owes its easy drinkability to a winemaking process called carbonic maceration, also called whole berry fermentation. This technique preserves the fresh, fruity quality of the wine, without extracting bitter tannins from the grape skins. The Beaujolais “Nouveau” dinner will feature thirteen wines from Fran Kysela’s outstanding portfolio.  Robert Parker on Kysela: “Kysela’s offerings all tend to be extremely pure, ripe, fruity short, faithful reflections of their appellations.”

“My philosophy on wine is one based on quality. Nothing else matters but the quality of the juice in the bottle. I look for wines that are true to type and classic in their flavors. I prefer wines that are fresh and bright and show good fruit/acid balance. I am not a new oak person, feeling that too much wood obscures true regional character. The wines I select are focused and on target. There is nothing more exciting than tasting a wine that hits the mark.” Fran Kysela

Description: We, Georges and Claudie, were browsing through an art market “Le Marché de la Création” in Lyon and we got separated while looking at all those artistic Creations. And when finally got reunited we both had something to show to each other. And it was the exact same painting representing the front of an old French bistro from Lyon called: LE BISTRO DU BEAUJOLAIS, but what was really special about this painting was written just under the name of the restaurant: LES CAVES DE L’AMI GEORGES which means: "The wine cellar of our friend Georges". And when you add the fact that Beaujolais is a wine area north from Lyon in France and that Georges is a French wine connoisseur, this was just the sign we were waiting for.

Specialty: French Cuisine, French Wines, French Music, French owners. So join us at 6:30pm Thursday November 16th, 2017, as we host our annual buffet special celebrating the release of the "Beaujolais Nouveau" wine. Free Coffee for FACC reservation.
