I’m kicking myself for not remembering to include this article. And yeah, it’s from Decanter too. I swear I don’t write for them, and I don’t even subscribe to them as a matter of fact. I guess they just seem to be on the ball lately with wine news.
Anyway, I should have included this in my last post. Chateau Lafite Rothschild (aka Chateau Lafite), another of the five First Growth Bordeaux, has ALSO given a tip-of-the-cap to the Chinese market. The Chinese symbol for the figure eight. Apparently this is “in celebration of the First Growth’s new vineyard venture in China.” Also to celebrate and attract their newfound goldmine of rich Chinese buyers.
Chateau Lafite actually announced this first, followed by Mouton in my previous post. I wonder who’s next?
