Would you pay first-growth money for Chinese wine? We bring you the most expensive Chinese wines in a round-up that makes Lafite Rothschild look cheap.

Moët-Hennessy’s Ao Yun may be the most high-profile Chinese fine wine, but it’s far from the most expensive

For many people, whether to call China a quality wine producing country is still a big question mark, let alone paying the equivalent of first growth Bordeaux for a China-made wine.

Ao Yun, a high-altitude wine from Shangri-la in southwestern Yunnan province by luxury group LVMH, certainly set a record as the first Chinese wine traded on Liv-ex (at around £225 a bottle).

But when it comes to expensive Chinese wine – whether justified or not – Ao Yun doesn’t even come close, with the most expensive bottle reaching almost RMB 30,000 (£3,500).

Here, we’ve rounded up five of the most unexpected and expensive Chinese wines.

    Luxury Brands are the worst thing that there is in wine. Just been sick in my mouth thinking about it actually…..

  2. table wine says:

    ‘Compared with other wines made in the region, the biggest draw for the wine is its association with China’s ancient and mysterious kingdom known as Loulan that was swallowed by shifting sands about 1,400 years ago, lending it the name – The Lost Kingdom in Taklamakan.’ Nothing to do with wine but lets charge £300 quid for it anyway.
