The project is unique in Moet Hennessy history as it is a brand-new winery creation: living the dream of any vigneron. It is the opportunity to discover a new region with fantastic potential, rich culture and breathtaking landscapes. Ao Yun means “roaming above the clouds”. This name refers to the thick, wandering clouds of the incredible region and celebrates the birthplace of the legend of Shangri-La.

Heady aromas of black currant, black pepper, baking spices and eucalyptus set the scene for flavors of dark plum, cherry, black tea and ground pepper, with a touch of smoke. Tannins come on a touch strong at first, then subside into a mellow, spice-filled finish. Overall, the feeling on the palate is very luxurious, with a visceral sense of minerality in the mouth.
