Beaujolais Blanc: Chardonnay, a charming varietal!
Lovers of French white wines know the Chardonnay, the famous varietal used for the making of white wines of Burgundy as the “Chablis”. But only some people knows that Chardonnay is also used in the Beaujolais region, where is produced a fresh and fruity wine, named plainly the Beaujolais Blanc. The quality of recent vintages participates in the success of it wine. With a potential of quality, it’s a varietal interesting to work, which may allow the elaboration of still, sparkling, dry or sweet wines. The white Beaujolais can be drunk young or not and it gains aromas of honey and grilled notes with age. The white Beaujolais is a great value of its vineyard, then don’t hesitate, taste it!

The 24th International Sarmentelles Festival: 5 days of festivities to celebrate the Beaujolais Nouveau 2012.
The story of Beaujolais Nouveau begins in 1951 but it's in 1985 that the release of Beaujolais Nouveau is planned every third thursday of November.
In 1989, on that occasion, the village of Beaujeu, the historic capital of the Beaujolais region, decided to organize an important popular event: the International Sarmentelles Festival.
The long-awaited moment of this festival is the "mise en perce" of Beaujolais Nouveau at midnight. Every year, light and sound accompany the spectacular broaching of the wine barrels, with a magical french sentence: "Le Beaujolais ne sert-il pas à boire à la terre entière?" (that's to say: Does not Beaujolais give the whole of Earth a drink?)
For 5 days, the International Sarmentelles Festival livens up Beaujeu with torchlight procession, fireworks, wine tastings, shows, brunches, concerts, children activities,...
Now, the Sarmentelles Festival has an international reputation: a good opportunity to celebrate this new "nectar" and to bring up the 12 appellations of the Beaujolais vineyard.

"Les conscrits" is a traditional celebration in Beaujolais since the second empire (1850).
At that time "conscrits" meant : young man called to military service.
During this call, two mens from Villefranche stood in front of the military authorities wearing a black suit and a top hat. The year after all the boys aged 20, who were supposed to be presented to the military service, adopted the same dress code. At the end of the XIXth century, the mens aged 40 joined them to celebrate the year of their own draw, then all the other decades did the same.
Nowadays the "conscrits" celebration is taking place in all the villages from Beaujolais. Last week Florent Descombe took part to this traditional event. And obviously he enjoyed it.
