Unique in Moët Hennessy’s history, Ao Yun is the realization of every winemaker’s dream - the discovery of a new region with fantastic potential, rich culture and breathtaking landscapes. The first vines in the region were planted 10 years ago, at altitudes between 2,200 to 2,600 meters and are some of the highest in the world. Ao Yun means “flying above the clouds” or “roaming above the clouds”.
The name refers to the thick, wandering clouds of this incredible region and celebrates the birthplace of the legend of Shangri-La. The specific character of this new Himalayan terroir, which Ao Yun expresses for the first time, reveals complexity, freshness, elegance and subtle tannins in a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
