The World Class Wine from a Mystical Place $170
Near the magical place of Shangri La in China comes a wine that is a world-class cru, where the philosophy of the wine is a subtle combination of the Burgundian and Bordelais. From Burgundy, Ao Yun takes the idea of fragmented terroirs vinified separately and tiny plots to express those terroirs. And from Bordeaux, Ao Yun takes inspiration in blending (of both varietals and of terroirs) to produce layering and complexity. What goes into the final blend is based on a blind-tasted selection and not a prejudgement of the respective relative merits of particular terroirs. We will taste the wine across 3 vintages to showcase this incredible depth and quality of Ao Yun.
Time: 2:30pm to 3:15pm
