The project is unique in Moet Hennessy history as it is a brand-new winery creation: living the dream of any vigneron. It is the opportunity to discover a new region with fantastic potential, rich culture and breathtaking landscapes. Ao Yun means “roaming above the clouds E This name refers to the thick, wandering clouds of the incredible region and celebrates the birthplace of the legend of Shangri-La.

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! (Robert Parker)
