The Grand VIN of the Château represents the latest generation of top wines from China – and belonging to the world´s finest!

The GRAND VIN of the château – and grand in every tastable way: Vintage 2016 marks the real start of the château, deeply concentrated and richly flavoured.

As any other great Cabernet Sauvignon CHATEAU CHANGYU MOSER XV 2016 fits the classic food for classic reds. However, nothing better than a juicy steak, a nice piece of suitable cheese or a nice chocolate tarte will make your senses go wild.


IT IS A GRAND VIN! The freshness of Grand Vin 2016 is enhanced by a 0.7% lighter in ABV (in comparison with the 2015 vintage).

Very dark ruby colour.

On the nose, vanilla and a burst of sweet ripe cassis.

This is our proposition of a big wine from the Helan Mountain region of Ningxia. Opulent, luscious and of enormous character and body – this wine lifts you with its power. It conjures up a myriad of food pairing ideas, from a juicy steak, confit of duck or a rich ripe cheese.

The wine is a statement for the region with its beauty, power of fruit, tannins, taste, style and a long finish. Yet, it also encompasses elements of elegance and finesse.

If you taste it blind with friends – against top Cabernet wines from around the world, I believe you will be pleasantly surprised and amazed – it is a real experience to discover a new wine region, emerging in the desert of northern China in Ningxia. It is no coincidence that the region and the Chateau itself display a rare beauty.
