AMA Selection Bordeaux 2020 Hidden Jade Selection - Alexandre MA

I believe those who have seen my vintage report on Bordeaux 2020 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 2020 AMA Selection.”


I have a few words to share about the “AMA Selection 2020”.


As a Chinese wine critic based in Bordeaux, I have always hoped to incorporate Eastern elements into the bloodline of wine, and interpret the unique stories of each wine from a Chinese perspective. In my opinion, creating a Top50 or Top100 wine list is a good way, but I would like to take it a step further and help consumers quickly locate the wine they are looking for.

Therefore, after extensive consultation and research, we decided to divide the “AMA Selection” into three categories last year, so that each categorie can meet different consumer needs. It can not only provide purchase suggestions for collectors, but also help young wine lovers find high-cost-performance wines. In my eyes, the selected wines represent the highest standards in their respective fields and I believe they will provide you with the most convenient wine selection plan.


The three categories are:
Kunlun Selection
Hidden Dragon Selection
Hidden Jade Selection


<Hidden Jade Selection>

Remarkable wines of the vintage, with excellent quality that can rival the well-known Grands Vins while maintaining a wonderful cost-performance ratio. These beauties are waiting to be discovered by your discerning palate.

In Chinese culture, jade symbolizes nobility, beauty, and purity. An uncarved piece of jade, after being carefully carved and polished, will become a brilliant and precious gem.
