Exclusive Cuvée Cornas 2008 President Xi Jinping

This wine ” La grande robe rouge” was offered by President Emmanuel Macron to  President of China Xi Jinping while visiting France in early May. This Cornas 2008 was served at the State Dinner as a  testimony to the deep friendship of 60 years between France and China. In 1964 Président Charles de Gaulle had initiated strong diplomatic relationship between our two countries that lasted ever since.

The intense red robe of the Cornas wine, born in the Rhône Valley with smoky aromas, is  reminiscent of  the famous Da Hong Pao Oolong tea “Grand Red Dress,”  from the Wuyishan plants in the Fujian province.
The chosen vintage for this unique blend is 2008, the year of the Beijing Olympics, as France prepares to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris this year.
