A Great Wine from the Himalayas by LVMH
The world-renowned luxury group is embarking on a new adventure in China, more precisely near the legendary city of Shangri-La, in the foothills of the Himalayas. Ao Yun is the name of this wine, meaning "flying above the clouds" in the local language, born in 2013 and coming from several vineyards located at altitudes between 2,200 and 2,600 meters! Produced in very limited quantities, this is a rare wine that may become a pioneer among high-end Chinese wines.
Blending 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, Ao Yun 2014 has a dense, deep and dark colour. On the nose it is a complex wine, revealing red fruits, spices (cinnamon, liquorice), hummus... On the palate the wine is balanced, with a refined tannic structure. It is a full-bodied wine, expressing aromas of red fruits, flowers and mineral notes that bring plenty of complexity. The beautiful length of this Ao Yun 2014 offers freshness and elegance, made possible by an incredible terroir! Both rare and original, this Yunnan wine may change the way in which we see Chinese wines. Truly a wine to discover!
