Producer's note: "Guojiao 1573 is produced in our treasured fermentation pits that have been in continuous use for over four centuries. It is the cream of Luzhou Laojiao and our flagship product.
Tasting Notes: A floral nose with honey, pine resin and grilled pineapple. A velvety mouthfeel with a burst of fruit and a raisin-like finish reminiscent of the best grappa. Serve Chilled: Try Guojiao 1573 served chilled at 12°C, it allows the fragrance and mellowness to converge to deliver an enhanced aroma".

In recent years, China has become an important red-wine producer, primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon (the most planted wine-grape variety), Carménère (the locals call it Cabernet Gernischt), Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. The Chinese draw on the French Bordeaux model of winemaking, maturing premium and super-premium styles of wine for a longer period of time in French oak barriques. The resulting red wines are often dry and may or may not be influenced by new oak. However, there are also some off-dry and sweet styles of red wines. And China does produce small quantities of rosé and white wines – the latter primarily from Chardonnay and Riesling – although as a whole, the Chinese domestic market prefers red wines.
