AMA Selection 2021-Hidden Dragon Selection - Alexandre MA

I believe those who have seen my tasting report on Bordeaux 2021 in bottle published last week have already gained a full understanding of the vintage. In order to make it easier for everyone to choose the wine they are looking for,I have also prepared a highly practical recommendation wine list for you, that is “Bordeaux 2021 AMA Selection.”


This tasting experience has enriched me with many insights. I’ve gained a more profound appreciation for the resilience, determination, and magic-like techniques that Bordeaux’s winemakers used. Through conversations with vineyard managers and winemakers, I’ve observed diverse approaches to solving problems and various interpretations of the 2021 vintage, which is why I’ve dubbed 2021 as “The Vintage of Winemaker.”


Last year, I received many messages from wine lovers expressing their high regard for the AMA Selection. I am excited that friends from diverse cultural backgrounds, both Eastern and Western, can accurately grasp the Oriental essence of “Kunlun Selection,” “Hidden Dragon Selection,” and “Hidden Jade Selection.” I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to you all for your attention to the AMA Selection.


For the 2021 vintage, I bring to you a selection of 39 wines of various categories and target markets, hoping it will genuinely assist you and continue to safeguard your wallet.


<Hidden Dragon Selection>

Exceptional Grands Vins of the vintage that have not yet fully revealed their true potential in the Chinese market. Their compelling quality suggests they are destined to shine in the future and offer great investment value.

The Chinese dragon – “Long” is a legendary creature in Chinese culture that symbolizes power, honor, and dignity. Behold the sleeping dragon, with its mythical power, destined for great success upon awakening.
