The GRAND VIN of the château – and grand in every tastable way: Vintage 2013 marks the real start of the château, deeply concentrated and richly flavoured.

As any other great Cabernet Sauvignon CHATEAU CHANGYU MOSER XV 2013 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.

TASTING NOTES BY LENZ M. MOSER

“Breathtaking, beautiful, generous, big and certainly different from the usual Bordeaux blends. Yes, it is Cabernet, yes there is a touch of oak in this young, rich and new 2013. But it isn’t like all of them – it offers a new kind of generosity, lusciousness and freshness, pretty unique in the field of the top wines around the world. The colour is deep, full of youth. The nose blows wide with the delicate and rich fruit flavours paired with a hint of elegant vanilla, wood and charming spices. A perfect precursor for the mouthfeel which brings your palate into ecstasy – vibrant, fresh and strong Cabernet with finesse and a long , strong finish. This is the new Ningxia style – spice and classic at the same time with a well balanced tannin structure.“
