China’s 10 best selling wines online

9. Château Soutard 1986

chateau-soutard-1986Château Soutard has a history which stretches back to 1699, but the modern Soutard is renowned for its new, state-of-the-art winery.
While many English-speaking consumers describe notes of truffle, raspberry and licorice in the 1986 Chateau Soutard, Chinese reviewers on Wangjiu mentioned none of these characters.
The only single aroma that was mentioned (by several reviewers) was one familiar to the Chinese palate, the Ume plum.

Price on Wangjiu: ¥675.00 (£72)

Wangjiu customer reviews:
“The aroma is not pronounced initially, opening up only after 40 minutes of aeration- What follows are notes of milk chocolate, florals, and caramel. The finish is long, with lingering notes of Ume plum.”
“Subtle hints of fruit aromas, reminds me of Ume plum”
“Perhaps ladies would prefer this wine style!”
