Air France, one of the best wine and spirits cellars in the sky
In all its travel cabins, Paolo Basso, voted world’s best sommelier in 2013, in cooperation with Thierry Desseauve and Michel Bettane, authors of the bettane+desseauve French wine guide sign the Air France wine and Champagne list.
Every year, Air France serves 800,000 bottles of wine in La Première and Business class and 750,000 bottles of Champagne, including in Economy class. All the wines and spirits are chosen for their capacity to adapt to the constraints linked to the particular environment of air transport, particularly the dry air and cabin pressure that modify how tastes are perceived.
The company was also awarded the title of “Best selection of wines 2018 for an airline” and awarded “Three glasses” (following the example of the Michelin Guide’s stars awarded to chefs) for its wine selection in La Première cabin by “China’s wine list 2018”.
