Domaine Franco-Chinois East Garden

East Garden (Donghuayuan), the home to Domaine Franco-Chinois, lends its enchanting name to this classic blended wine that embodies the essence of the Huailai terroir.

While vineyard management remains consistent, the vinification for East Garden differs slightly to Domaine Franco-Chinois Reserve red wines

a gentler maceration during fermentation, marginally lower fermentation temperatures, and a higher proportion of aging in old French barrels. These methods imbue the East Garden blend with elegant fruity aromas, silky tannins, and a sophisticated body, making them suitable for immediate enjoyment or cellaring.
