“Who wants to try, honestly, Chinese Cabernet Sauvignon? But what about Chinese Marselan? I think there’s something here, an opportunity.”

Today we sit down with Julien Boulard, a China based wine educator, Master of Wine Candidate and Director of Zhulian Wine Consulting. In this episode we discuss everything you need to know about Chinese wines from key regions, why Chinese wines are priced so high and what could be the future of Marselan in China.

Marselan is the new hot variety in China right now, it’s a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache. The grape variety didn’t work well in France; it gave low yields, although high-quality grapes but today it’s finding its foothold in China.
