Again this year, Air France KLM Martinair Cargo carried more than 1,500 tonnes of Beaujolais Nouveau wine, with approximately 75% dedicated to the Japanese market. AFKLMP organised a wine-tasting event with more than 150 guests to show our appreciation for our customers.
Beaujolais Nouveau is made from grapes harvested in the French Beaujolais region in late August and fermented for a few days only. It is released to the public on the 3rd Thursday of November. With the time difference, Japanese customers are amongst the very first to be able to drink the first French wine of the year.
