It was only a matter of time before China positioned its wines in the international market of expensive wines. But taking into account the quality of Chinese wines today, all indicated that it would take years before that country raised the bar.
However, Château Hansen, in Wuhai, in Inner Mongolia - a region best known for its coal mines rather than its wines - has just announced the release this summer  of Red Carmel, a 100% cabernet sauvignon varietal.
The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard in the northern province of Xingxia bordering Inner Mongolia.   The grapes are harvested twice: two third are harvested when they reach 12% alcohol and the rest are a late harvest when grapes are beginning to dry on the vines.  The wine is vinified under the supervision of Bruno Paumard, a sommelier, writer et former winemaker at the domaine de Bouvet-Ladubay in the Loire Valley. He has announced that 10,000 bottles of the  2010 vintage will be released.   Château Hansen has already released 2 million bottles of blends of cabernet gernischt, semillon et riesling, which are distributed and sold in China.
