Wine parties were held the world over last night for the ritual uncorking of Beaujolais Nouveau.  Bottles of 2013 Beaujolais were opened at midnight on November 20th.  Japan is the biggest market and usually the first to uncork but the US consumed more than 2 million bottles in 2012.  A young wine, not suited for storage, it is marketed during the month of November each year.
