The Chateau Changyu Moser With an acidity of 5.4 g/l, this is a Bordeaux and its approach to "la frecheur". The wine is made by Lenz M. Moser - the head winemaker Chateau Changyu Moser XV who spends the entire harvest period in Ningxia. The wine is also bottled Mise en bouteille au château / Estate Bottled. Only 6,300 bottles of this truly special and ultra rare wine were made. The wine is aged in barriques in the castle's barrel cellar for 24 months. Partly on new French oak and partly 2nd and 3rd year.

The wine is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with beautiful floral aromas in the nose with complex notes of red and dark berries, with savory hints of cedar, tobacco and a warm touch of vanilla through a subtle wood treatment - all in perfect harmony, with a built-in ' feel good' factor. In the mouth lush, generous and with a wonderful freshness. A top wine from Ningxia with a focus on elegance and finesse. The wine is very balanced and has intensity and complexity without being overbearing or overwhelming.

Château Changyu Moser It is the very first Winery in China founded in 1892 by Zhang Bishi, an overseas Chinese diplomat.

After more than 120 years of growth, today CHANGYU is a group with international shareholders such as ILLVA (Italy, Amaretto di Saronno) and IFC (International Finance Corporation, USA), which owns and operates eight castles and wineries throughout China.

Lenz received a double university education at Austria's Klosterneuburg in business and oenology. Even with his formal education, Lenz attributes his understanding of the fundamentals of life and his winelogical knowledge to his grandfather, the legendary professor Dr. Lorenz Moser III., who invented and developed the ubiquitous Austrian trellis system called the "Lenz Moser Hocherziehung". , which revolutionized vineyard cultivation across Europe.

Lenz's impressive wine career began at Lenz Moser Winery (Austria's leading wine producer) as General Manager for 10 years. In 1997, Lenz was asked to join Robert Mondavi as General Manager Europe, where he established the European branch and led the pioneering American wine company for nine years until it was sold to the Constellation Group. In 2005, Lenz returned to his Austrian roots by founding LAURENZ V. with two partners.

His second activity from 2005 was acting as CEO of an import company in Germany, which brought wines from 10 countries to Europe. In this capacity, he first met the people of Changyu in 2005, on his way to building a close relationship with the leaders of this great and groundbreaking company. In 2015 they decided on a joint project: Chateau Changyu Moser XV , a collaboration with the great goal of producing the best and most important wines of China.
