How to pair your Beaujolais Nouveau wine

Beaujolais Nouveau is probably the freshest, youngest wine you'll ever drink. It’s a wine with easy drinkability due its low tannins. It’s typically light, yet a bit earthy. It’s fruity, while still retaining a certain spice. This has implications for the foods you pair it with.

When considering foods that pair well with Beaujolais Nouveau wine, avoid heavy and spicy foods, as Beaujolais, being a light wine, typically doesn’t have the depth to stand up to such flavours. Think about pairing your Beaujolais Nouveau wine with fish, light chicken dishes, salads, cheeses and charcuterie.

Pair your Beaujolais with:

  • Poached salmon
  • Roast chicken sandwich
  • Cheese with a crusty baguette
  • Smoked ham
  • Field greens salads
  • Cream sauce pastas
  • Turkey
  • Potato chips!
