Chinese wine - 'Great Wall 2002 Red or White' - Anyone tried them?

Charles Yu Nov 18, 2009 04:50 PM

Just read that the Chinese government served the 2002 Great Wall red and White during the state dinner given to Obama. Out of curiosity, has any fellow chowhounder tried them? I understand the red is CS based, any idea what grape varietal was used to make the white?

    The White is described in CellarTracker! as a blend.

    This Web site suggests the white is Chardonnay

      I have a bottle of the Red that someone brought back for me from China.

      I've been too afraid to try it!

      I remember reading that Lafite-Rothschild (or was it Latour?) has bought a property in "China's Bordeaux". Will been interesting to see how that goes...
