Chinese buying in Côtes du Rhône

Chinese buying in Côtes du Rhône | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Amid the unease that recently came with a Chinese purchase of Château de Gevrey-Chambertin in Burgundy, it appears that the Chinese are buying in the Côtes du Rhône too.

 

French-Chinese trader Champ Dong Créations Industries is reported to have purchased the Domaine Bouche estate for a rumoured €2m.


Located in the Vaucluse département, the estate has an annual output of up to 150,000 bottles of mid-range red and rosé wines. That's big, but not massive, but it's bound to raised a Gallic eyebrow or two.

Have you been to the house of the pope recently?

Chateauneuf du Pape thrives partly because it's the most sophisticated sounding French name that Anglophones can pronounce, but is the wine any good?

 

If you love Shiraz, enjoy Grenache, or marvel at Mouvedre, then this might be for you. Read Jeff Leve's tasting notes of the 2010 vintage and maybe pick out one or two that you should try.
