Long Dai

Qiu Shan Valley, China

Domaine de Long Dai is nestled at the heart of the Qiu Shan Valley in the Shandong Province in the North eastern part of China.

The vines, planted in 2011 on terraces built in the granite soils from the foothills of the Qiu Shan Valley, benefit from Shandong’s beautiful late-season growing grapes that can be harvested at full maturity, by hand, through successive pickings. The 360 terraces we have planted each require specific care because of the difference in terms of terroir and how they influence the development of the vines.

We adapt our actions throughout the growing season, as well as to determine the optimal harvest date so that the grapes reach perfect maturity.

    TASTING NOTES (at bottling)

    The nose is marked by black fruits like blackberry and blueberry, and the Marselan grape variety brings in subtle hints of sweet spice and violet. The attack is fresh and lively, on the palate, the wine shows a nice amplitude and elegant tannins that have benefited from an aging of 18 months in French oak barrels.
