The Ao Yun vineyards – Moët Hennessy’s Chinese project – are some of the world’s most dramatic and extreme, towering at over 2,000 metres’ altitude over the Mekong. Tasted alongside the 2016 and 2017 vintages, the 2018 is a clear step up. With gentler extraction, less new oak and more Merlot than previous vintages, it’s more supple and integrated, with fine and ripe tannins, crunchy vibrant fruit and acidity that speaks of its lofty location. Sweet plum and black cherry is balanced by a bite of redcurrant fruit. Tight and concentrated at this stage, yet with lifted aromatics, there’s a moreish crushed-rock, mineral edge to the long finish.
