Wine in China, 2019


China

The quality of western wine in China is visibly better this time. But the labels are still being wrapped …

Tangshan Chile Kenos from Central Valley: Chardonnay (2016; 4.0) and Tempranillo (2017; 3.6). Both have ratings (based on all vintages ) on vivino but no price.

Chengdu

Chongqing – didn’t try. Mondavi Private Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is $6.99 but it’s ¥268 in the shop, which is about $38. Mondavi 50th Anniversary Cab 2014 is $28 in US but costs ¥698 which is about $100.
