A sparkler is haunting China: Karl Marx wine in Beijing

A sparkler is haunting China

You’d think a wine named “Karl Marx” would be a red, but not so with this one I found haunting the shelves of Jinkelong supermarket in downtown Beijing during the Chinese New Year. The label says it is a semi-dry sparkling, though I have yet to confirm it with a taste test. It might be time to create a page for, uh, atypical labels found in China. See also:

By the way, I realize it has been quite a while since my last post, but some stuff is in the queue, including notes from a recent lunch with Jancis Robinson, an interview with one of the top Champagne distributors in China, quite a few tastings, and more.

Prepare for some glass struggle.
