“The Beaujolais has become over the (22) years the major event in the French culture. It has become exciting because many of you might not know it but Beaujolais Noveau is freshly harvested wine and the way we drink it is just a few months old – 2 to 3 months,” said FCC – Le Club President Cyril Rocke during the Soiree Beaujolais 2013 media launch held at Manila Hotel last week.
