Moët building a winery in China

Who woulda thunk it? Moët, one of the most famous champagne names in the world, is building a winery in China. This isn’t simply a facade of a building to help them sell more bottles in the country. This is a full-on winery. Growing grapes, making the bubbly in the Champenoise method, and they have even built an above-ground cellar to age the wines. Apparently the region is prone to flooding, so earth was piled up to create one above the water. I’d like to hear more about names, labels, price points and the like. Cheers, China.
