NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today wine enthusiasts across the country rejoice as the first bottles of award-winning Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2014 arrive in the United States. Four days before the official arrival more than 100 wine experts gathered in France for The Lyon-Beaujolais Nouveau Trophy, the only official Beaujolais Nouveau competition in the world, organized in partnership with the Association of French Oenologists from the Burgundy Central-East Region and Inter Beaujolais. Measured against nearly 400 other samples, the 2014 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau and Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau were awarded the coveted Gold Medal. Since this French wine first came to the U.S. in 1982, Beaujolais Nouveau Day has been an annual celebration to honor the end of harvest and offer the first taste of the new vintage. Released at 12:01 am on the third Thursday in November per French law, Beaujolais Nouveau is a bright, flavorful red wine made from the Gamay grape. The 2014 label is reminiscent of the lush Beaujolais vineyards and bright colors of the harvest. The wine is harmonious with well-balanced flavors bringing a harvest-to-table freshness to any holiday gathering. "The 2014 Beaujolais Nouveau is a ruby red color with crimson halos and delicate notes of red berry, which gradually develop into notes of blueberry and black currant," said winemaker Georges Duboeuf. "After tasting and analyzing more than 5,700 samples of wine, we are happy to report that the 2014 vintage is full-bodied and delightfully rich with structure reminiscent of the 2011 vintage, which was an exceptional year." To celebrate this year's Beaujolais Nouveau Day, second generation winemaker Franck Duboeuf uncorked the first bottles at a midnight party at New York City's Tribeca Rooftop, which was transformed into the vineyards and market squares of Beaujolais. Guests danced to live jazz, enjoyed French fare…
NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) for the U.S. increased 0.9 percent in October to 105.2 (2004 = 100), following a 0.7 percent increase in September, and no change in August. "The LEI rose sharply in October, with all components gaining over the previous six months," said Ataman Ozyildirim, Economist at The Conference Board. "Despite a negative contribution from stock prices in October, and minimal contributions from new orders for consumer goods and average workweek in manufacturing, the LEI suggests the U.S. expansion continues to be strong." "The upward trend in the LEI points to continued economic growth through the holiday season and into early 2015," said Ken Goldstein, Economist at The Conference Board. "This is consistent with our outlook for relatively good, but not great, consumer demand over the near term. Going forward, there are continued concerns about slow business investment and lackluster income growth." The Conference Board Coincident Economic Index® (CEI) for the U.S. increased 0.1 percent in October to 110.2 (2004 = 100), following a 0.3 percent increase in September, and a 0.1 percent increase in August.
